Richard is a Black Belt!!!

Yay! Richard passed his Black Belt testing!! Now he is a First Degree Level One (Probationary) Black Belt! The belt has a red stripe to show that it is a probationary rank.

Here Mrs. Overstreet, one of Richard's instructors, is tying his black belt onto him.
Next to her (in the foreground) is Richard's main instructor, Mr. Overstreet.

Here is Richard and Cara, she just got her Red Senior belt, that is one level below Black Belt.

This is Richard, Lenore, and Richard's cousin Lauren. Lenore is a Red Senior, and Lauren is a Second Degree Level 3 Black Belt.

Mr. Overstreet signed one of the boards that he broke in a demo before the awards ceremony.

Richard wanted a picture with Mr. Overstreet after getting his Black Belt. Richard looks so happy!
