Rank examinations were held on Friday, 27 November, and two of our Bartitsu students were candidates for new sash levels. Shawn Bullock successfully earned the first Red Sash, which is the level of Free Scholar. Connor Fitzpatrick passed the exam to join the ranks of Scholars and wear the Blue Sash. If you attend classes at Academie Duello or will be dropping by this week, be sure to congratulate them both when you see them!
