Many students appeared for their 1st Dan or 1st level of Black belt and some upgraded themselves from 1st to 2nd and so on. Dignitaries who graced the event by their presence were Colonel Nevendra Singh Paul, Joint Commissioner of Kolkata Police and Mr. Pawan Kumar Patodia, Chairman and Principal owner at Thunderbolts.
Hon’ble Colonel addressed the gathering first and mentioned how he is proud of Mr. Sen for building our generation strong, both physically and mentally and for impacting the lives of so many women by his training. Mr. Singh in his speech said how amazed he was to see such a beautifully organized event and the way so many girls were aware and willingly learning self defence. He recalled a time when Mr. Premjit Sen was in charge to train the Black Cat Commando for free hand combat and Mr. Singh was one of his students. He wished all the children all the best for all their future endeavours.
Mr. Patodia was all full of praise for Mr. Sen for the hardwork and dedication he puts in his sport. He was amused to know that there was a mother-son duo too who were appearing in the exam that day. “With getting the black belt, you also get a responsibility towards your society and family. It will make you more humble in life because with power many things come in life.” quoted Mr. Patodia.
Hanshi Premjit Sen added, “black belt in karate is just a milestone and beginning of new horizon for everyone. Hence, work hard and set harder goals and put your heart amd soul to achieve them”.
