Master Arnold's senior student, Master Daniel Kohler, who has studied under Master Arnold for 26 years, awarded Master Arnold with two embroidered 8th Degree belts, which symbolize his loyalty and dedication to his Sahbum.

Several of Master Arnold's students traveled in from around the United States to support Master Arnold on this momentous occassion.

Master Arnold was proud to have his wife Jeanne and daughter Madison at the presentation. Currently his son Zach is studying overseas in France completing his junior year of high school.

Grand Master Lang announced that Master Arnold will now be the Senior Advisor of the organization and all official YOM CHI TaeKwon-Do decisions will be handled by him.
