Thread: Promotion of Tim Hartman by WMAA Board.

    Post Promotion of Tim Hartman by WMAA Board.

    On behalf of the Advisory Board of the World Modern Arnis Alliance, it is my privilege and pleasure to announce that the Board has promoted Datu Tim Hartman to the rank of 7th degree black belt (Lakan Pito), effective 31 January 2003.

    This promotion comes after considerable deliberation by the Board as well as consultation with WMAA members and outside experts regarding not only Mr. Hartman's suitability for promotion but also the best way to proceed with high-level promotions in the absence of an accepted promotional authority at the highest levels of the art. The promotion is in recognition of his physical skill and additionally his contributions to spreading the art and organizing the WMAA and its curriculum.

    The Board extends its congratulations to Datu Hartman.

    Lightbulb Congrats!

    When I was sitting with Tim tonight eating chicken wings and drinking beer his words were, "Wanna pass me the napkins?"

    A man of few words obviously.

    Congrats!

    Congratulations Datu Hartman!!

    This promotion is truly earned and in keeping with the timeline of previous promotions given him by the Professor. He has done more than his share to promote and carry Modern Arnis well into the future with the solid foundation of the World Modern Arnis Alliance.

    I believe congrats are also in order to the World Modern Arnis Alliance, it's Advisory Board and Members for doing the right thing at the right time. Their commitment to move foreword is admirable.
