1st Dan

Ewan McColl started training with us as a youth for many years, and was awarded his Junior BlackBelt June 20, 2018.

He has demonstrated in every way what it is to be a martial artist, very respectful, works hard, and helps out the lower ranks.  He’s a great example to our students, so it’s only natural he became one of our volunteer teaching assistants until we went off to college.

He participated in our karate tournaments over the years, and our weapons video highlights with Nico Zacharatos 2nd Dan, taught by Jamie BenAziz-Zacharatos 3rd Dan in 2019.

We’re Proud to call him a Zacharatos Blackbelt! As Master Zacharatos says, now his journey has just begun! We know he’ll do great in college and beyond!
