On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am delighted to announce two major promotions:
First, Will Ball has been promoted to 5th-dan and to be the new Technical Director for the TAA, where he replaces Bob King, who has well served in that position for many years.
Second, Bob King has been promoted to 7th-dan and Shihan, after his successful tenure as Technical Director.
Heartfelt congratulations to both of them, and with deep thanks for their years of service to the TAA.
8th Dan, Chairman & Shihan
