Master Cristina Costa from Portugal visits ITF HQ and receives her 6th Dan Certificate
Posted October 3, 2022

I am very proud of Master Costa of Portugal. Officially she was promoted to 6th Dan in July 2019.

But she did not want to receive her certificate by mail. She wanted to receive it in person from her Choong Jae Nim. I have been holding her 6th Dan certificate until August 24 2022. She had the opportunity to finally come to the United States from Portugal. She came and practiced with ITF Vice President Joe Bruno, Master Pat Leach, Master Kristin Venturino, and I. She was very excited an happy to train with these wonderful people and finally receive her 6th Dan certificate. She is a good Master, she helps her black belts and students and Her husband Kyo Sa Nim Costa. The International Tang Soo Do Federation appreciates their support and Tang Soo Do spirit. She received a Certificate of Merit and KyoSa Nim Costa received a Letter of Appreciation. These are well deserved honors for their effort and leadership.

Congratualtions and continue to show your attitude and spirit. Master and Kyo Sa Nim Costa
