Shimadera-san is awarded 7th Dan

Many congratulations to [user]K.Cima[/user], who has been awarded his 7th Dan.

For those of you that don't know, there are grades 7-10 above the "normal" Dan gradings. These are awarded based on the things a player has done to promote kendama in various ways. [See
http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,635.0.html ]

With his travels and interactions with foreign players, Cima has certainly helped to spread a lot of kendama culture and knowledge to the Western world.

We salute you, sir!

I saw it earlier today on Facebook.

It is a very well deserved 7th Dan. I'm very happy for Shimadera-san

Shimadera-san definitely deserved this grade. His presence at the European Conventions is always most highly welcome and inspiring. Congratulations.

Many congratulations, Cima! I'm really pleased for you.
I've updated http://kendama.co.uk/dan.html - it's almost exactly 11 years since you got your 6th Dan!
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!
