4th Degree Black Belt Granny

Pam Neil

Four years ago Pam Neil set the National Karate record as the oldest person to test for a Black Belt Degree at the age of 72! Now she is back at 76 testing for 4th Degree Black Belt!

To put this into perspective – out of 11,000 NK Black Belts she is the only person of that vintage to test for any degree of Black Belt.

Last time NBC did a really funny story on her you have to see. View NBC 5’s ‘Black Belt Granny!’ video.

Another special element of this test will be that there will be 3 generations of Black Belts testing as Ms. Neil’s daughter and grand daughter are also testing! See picture below.

You are invited to watch her and all our other amazing students this Saturday at 6:00PM at Bethel Baptist Church/Schaumburg Christian School at 200 N. Roselle Road, Schaumburg, IL.

Admission is FREE. Hope to see you there!
