Wallace awards honorary black belt
A special event took place Nov. 30 at Billy Smith American Karate Studio as the regular Wednesday night class honored an extraordinary warrior, Aiden Wallace.
Six-year-old Aiden has battled Nephroblastoma / Wilms Tumor, a cancer of the kidney. Since this Feb., Aiden has had one kidney removed and undergone chemo and radiation treatments.
Wallace’s grandmother said that “right before Thanksgiving we got news that the cancer was gone”
The ceremony was put together by Kenny G. Rebstock, founder of Cancer Warrior Martial Arts Program.
Aiden was taught some basic karate skills by some of the BSAK students. The evening ended with Aiden receiving his honorary black belt.
Grand Master Steve Parks told Aiden “you are now part of our family here at BSAK.”
