Grand Master Clark

Master Droege, what a pleasure it has been watching you all of these years. I was there when you tested at Master Hamilton’s school for your Black Belt. It was obvious from the start that you would do great things.

Over the last 40 years, we have trained together many times. It’s always great to have your enthusiasm in the class when I was teaching.

I can’t express how gratifying it was to watch you train for your Mastership and then to watch you go through the Masters Ceremony. I was so proud of you even though you weren’t my direct student.

Now what a leader you have become. Not only in martial arts, but in all areas of your life. Congratulations on your promotion to Grand Master. I can’t imagine anyone who deserves it more than you.

Keep doing GREAT things!
