This past weekend I attended the Philadelphia Historic Martial Arts Society Banquet and, much to my surprise, received this fabulous honor.
The beautifully framed certificate states, in part:
Be it know that Hanshi Stephen Kaufman, Hebi Ryu Budo Kai, having served with distinction and being dedicated to the growth of the Martial Arts Way, and having met all the prescribed requirements for admission, the Board of Directors of the Philadelphia Martial Arts Society hereby authorize induction into the Hall of Fame Class of 2014.
What can I say? Ous!
