The Thursday before the annual Goodwill International tournament
is always a Yudansha Training, black belt only training.
Because of the numbers, it is divided into Sho-dans, first degree black belts. 
The second group for Ni-dan or second degree.
The last group is for San-dan or third degree and above.

In this group we had 47 training in the 
kata, Gojushiho with Thanh Nguyen & Ken Nishiki.
After the final training we changed to go eat.

This year we met at  Santa Buffet & Grill in Santa Ana.
