Official Student Ranking

(This page is still slightly under construction. I’m still messing around with the CSS and Java script. So bear with me. – Dwight)

This list represents current students who have advanced belt ranks awarded by Master Benjamin Ortega. Black Belt ranks may include students who are no longer current, as a result, their rank is recognized from the point in which they stopped training. Black Belt degrees are only awarded to students who remain active under the stewardship of Master Benjamin Ortega and within the Dave Hopkins Kung Fu San Soo/Kung Fu San Soo International Association.
