Last Night, in an emotional speech, Ron has told us the story of his club, his KungFu family, some of his past and how he sees Atado going forward.
As you may know, Ron and his wife Stacy are moving back home.
This leaves Atado up in the air for all of us. Luckily Ron has been thinking about his legacy and has prepared the hand-over. Shifu Victor, Shifu Karen, Shifu Justin and Shi Nicolas are ready to continue the Kung-Fu and Tai Chi practice. Shifu Ron will join us via Skype on Saturday’s and visit us for Gradings.
In the ceremony Grandmaster Ron Williamson abdicated his status in the 7th Generation of the Li family to Shi Nicolas as the 8th Generation of the Li family. Shifu Victor completed the ceremony by passing the family chop (seal) from Shifu Ron to Shi Nicolas.
