Historic Promotions for ITA
The ITA Board of Directors would like to congratulate the following instructors on their promotions at the 92nd IIC in Dublin on May 24th 2014. This was an historic day for our association with so many senior grades being promoted, especially with 3 new Masters in ITA. This shows the growth and development of the ITA and how strong our association has become.
Promoted to 6th Dan by the panel of Grandmaster Lan IX Dan, Master O'Toole VIII Dan and Master Douglas VIII Dan:
Mr. Kevin Kinsella, Mr. Stephen Ryan, Mr. Adrian Byrne, Mr. Jamie Rigney and Mr. Brian Coughlan.

All of them put in excellent performances and did their association proud. This brings the number of Masters in ITA to six and with twelve 6th Dans now in ITA many more Masters to be promoted in the not too distant future.
