Congratulations to Su Huynh Magglio Castro.  He earned his Black Sash on June 26, 2004.  The Test started with Magglio Castro's Bowing Ceremony to the ancestors and to Su Phu Tony Jordan and Grand Master Hong Nhan.  Then the test began!  This test was in front of a very distinguished board consisting of Grand Master Hong Nhan, Su Phu Tony Jordan, Su Ty Linh Le, Dr. David Grago, Sibok Philip Jordan, and Sifu Eddie Batiste.  It was evident that Magglio was very nervous, but confident with his skills and techniques. 

After the test Su Huynh Castro was awarded his rank and his Kung Fu name:  Hoang Thanh Nhan - Blue & Yellow Eagle.  The pale blue color stands for Devotion while the vibrant yellow color stands for Wisdom.  Together these 2 colors represent the qualities of a good teacher.  We believe that Magglio will be a great teacher and continue the traditions of Tay Son Nhan.  We welcome Magglio to our family!!!
