My heartfelt congratulations to Rohan Chaurasia at Bangkok Patana School for becoming the first student ever to receive a 7 Dan Yacapaca badge. If you have watched your students earn their White Belt in a day and their Orange Belt in two days, you may not appreciate the level of effort it takes to climb up the Dan grades. The secret is that each grade is exponentially harder than the last; the higher levels require exceptional diligence.
Rohan is in Y13 and studies IB SL Physics. He is one of just 8 students who have achieved 7th Dan worldwide (8th, 9th and 10th Dans remain completely unpopulated), and the first to also earn enough points to get the badge.
