Mr. Goins... lol, what a dick. He is Master Goins now. And still a dick.
On Saturday July 9th 2005 I had an honor bestowed upon me that was almost too good to be true.
Myself, Ms. Morgan Baker, Mr. Nick Drew and Mrs. Leslie Blakeway all took part in the Certified Instructor's Ceremony at Mr. Goins school. On that night we officially became a Certified Instructor.
I must tell you that it was both an exciting and humbling experience.
When I joined the ATA a little under 3 years ago I never imagined that it would change my life the way it has.
The ceremony consisted of 9 phases which were very symbolic in nature.
I have created a video of the event and will post a link to it once I receive permission from my Instructor to do so.
Here is the link to the video. Enjoy!!
