Germain got his shodan

I heard from Paul that Germain Difo got his shodan yesterday. Germain's in grad school at Georgetown.

I remember when Germain was a newbie. I remember two practices in particular — one when Sensei made him escape from yoko-shiho-gatame over and over and over, and another practice when Sensei tossed him all over the dojo during randori before promoting him to sankyu at the end of the night.

Congratulations on a well-deserved promotion!
