New Shihan Promotions

High level promotions are always an important event and it is with great pleasure and pride that The International Budo Institute announces that Dr. Donald Oxford York, Shihan has been promoted to 6th Dan and that Shihan Darren Hunter has been promoted to 5th Dan in the International Budo Institute. The presentation was made in March-2013 at the famous Tri-Star gym in Montreal, Canada by Dr. Henderson, Shihan in front of many of Shihan York’s and Shihan Hunter’s colleagues and students. Many demonstrations were completed as a tribute to the  dedication to Budo of both Shihans. We look forward to their continued efforts and their drive in pushing the mandate of the International Budo Institute forward.
