Rob Barton (left) and Tommy Music (right) traded in their brown belts when Castro decided that they had earned to move up in rank, according to Music. “It’s an honor to be promoted to black belt,” Music said in an interview with The Paper of Wabash County. “I cried. It’s seven years coming. Almost seven years that Mr. Barton and I have been coming down (to the dojo) anywhere from five to six days a week, one to two hours at a time. It’s been a long road to now and it’s an honor.” Photo provided
