Rafif Shidqi Fitrah, just turned 22, has rewarded faith in him in the Nihon Ki-in's scheme of special recommendations for foreigners. He was thus made 1-dan in 2020 but has now progressed to 2-dan on the basis of winning 30 games.

Fitra was born in Indonesia but was brought up in Japan, where is father is an engineer.

Something just clicked as I checked SL. He's self taught? I'm officially impressed.

Take care

As far as I'm aware, it's winning over half of your games in the open professional exam.
