Cole was promoted to Orange Belt, after almost 1.5-years (since his last belt) of hard work and dedication… You can read more about it, and see some photos on his blog. Congratulations Cole.

You can read how this journey began. And one of the original stories we read at Pottstown Judo, and so nominated Cole for the June 2007 Kid of the Year. (I was awarded Sensei of the Month June 2007, and Pottstown Judo as Club of the Month, for promoting visually disabled judo).

Cole practices the Tenshin-Ryu style of Karate.
