We, at Spivey Karate, are so proud of Sarah Zorn. She was first female ever to lead the corps of cadets at the Citadel Military School. Her drive, determination, integrity and goal setting skills are the same as they were when she was achieving 3 1st Degree Black Belts at Spivey Karate, in Open Style Karate, Weapons & Traditional Japanese Chito Ryu Karate. Included are some photos of her various Black Belt tests.
