Congratulations to Kane Raukura, member of the Lasallian Mission Council and Chair of the New Zealand Sector Mission Council (NZSMC) who has successfully passed his recent examination in International Taekwon-Do.
After 30 years of training and dedication to his sport and martial art he has been officially recognized and tested to the level of "Master" and 7th Degree Black Belt.
This accolade "Master" was awarded to Kane by an international panel of judges following a rigorous testing workout. The Master Award is seldomly presented, simply because the testing regime is so tough
A beautiful recognition ceremony was held by his club members at Dragon's Spirit Taekwon-Do in Auckland where they delightfully surprised him by secretly inviting Sir Br Patrick Lynch to do the blessing.
Over 50 plus Black Belts that Kane has trained were in attendance including multiple world champions.
