Body Worx in Monterey Awards Two Black Belts

Body Worx Martial Arts Academy in Monterey, CA awarded two new black belts on March 7, 2009 to Matt McLane and Paul Rauber.  I have been photographing belt tests at Body Worx for several years now, but every black belt test is something special and not to be missed.  This test did not disappoint.

Photographing sporting events requires having the right equipment and a fast eye.  It really is not much different than photographing a wedding or social event, in that I am always trying to capture the emotions of the day.  This was an exceptional black belt test.  Both Matt McLane and Paul Rauber were excellent and wowed the crowd at each level of their testing.
