Judo family wins five belts

Several of the Thalhofer family were honored recently in a belt promotion ceremony on Dec. 17 at the US Judo Training Center.

Josiah, Nathanael, and Adam all received their black belts. Peter, their dad, received his brown belt; and Hosanna earned her first belt promotion, the yellow belt.

Belt rankings progress from white to yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, brown and finally black.

Their coach of eight years, John Holm, says, “It’s almost certainly the first time in Washington state, perhaps the country, that three young men from one family have been promoted to black belt in judo on the same day, and certainly if you add a dad to brown and a sister to yellow.”
