This is Mr. Sanchez’ black belt ID card. These “gold cards” were given to the first generations of black belts under the Chuck Norris karate system and the [original] National Tang Soo Do Congress. Even though his main instructor was Mr. John Natividad (Chuck Norris black belt #026), Mr. Sanchez tested for his black belt directly under Chuck Norris in 1977 (#178).
