Exceptional Student Jan 2016
Has been chosen as Hikari Ryuza Center’s “Student of the Quarter”
His recognition was based off of his extremely focused dedication in class, and as such has become a role model for his classmates. We interviewed him so everyone could get to know him a little better. Without further ado, we present: Harrison!

P: What is a really cool fact about one of your favorite animals?
H: Peregrine Falcons are really FAST! They can go 240 mph.
H: Because it’s fun and that’s why I want to stay.
P: What are some of the important things you are learning?
H: How to escape. We learn lot’s of stuff. How to pay attention.
P: Why do you think I often choose you to be a helper?
H: Because I’m being good and focused.
P: If you wanted to invite a friend to Bujutsu, what would you say?
H: Will you please come.
P: What is your favorite part of class?
P: Sure, that makes sense. What is your favorite game?
H: Jump rope!
*Sidenote from Professor – this is impressive because Harrison could not figure out the timing to jump into the rope when he was first introduced to it. Because of this he did not even want to try, but with some persuasive encouragement from me to keep trying, he (begrudgingly at first) kept at it. It was very exciting when he successfully jumped in for the first time. Now it is his favorite! This makes me very happy!!!
P: How far do you want to go in your Bujutsu?
H: To a 10th Degree Black Belt.
P: Wow! That will take a lifetime of dedication. Why do you want to do that?
H: Because you could train harder.
