If I'm not mistaken, Jane Ozeki is the first woman 7th Dan in the US.

Congratulations to all!
Cecilia Ricciotti Sensei (Ki Society) is also 7th Dan.

Jane Ozeki Sensei is the first woman 7th Dan in the USAF, and I'm very happy for her. My dojo had the pleasure of hosting her for a seminar last November. :-D I would also think that would make her a shihan, but the teacher list was just updated in December. Maybe by the next update?

Congrats to all!
