Nathan Ingram receives Shidoshi designation from Grandmaster Ron Van Clief

I went to a demonstration event yesterday for Nathan Ingram in Chinatown, where Grandmaster Ron Van Clief issued Ingram the official title of Shidoshi – or 10th Dan Black Belt. Both Shidoshi Nathan Ingram and Grandmaster Ron Van Clief gave martial arts demonstrations during the event, which was held near Ingram’s Chinatown Sports Club, at Public School 126 on Catherine Street. Friends and relatives attended the ceremony, along with New York news figure and martial artist Felipe Luciano, Grandmaster Robert “Sugar” Crosson, affiliated martial schools and others.
