Grading’s are always proud moments but as students’ progress up the ladder and you expect more and more of them (and they deliver…) they do become special moments, both for student an sensei alike.
On Sunday 3 students graded to 1st kyu, 1 to 4th kyu and all were tested on a number of aspects from our syllabus from kihon and foundational understanding to higher grade kata, advanced combinations and tactical application/s.
We are very proud to present our new 1st kyu’s:
And our new 4th kyu:
Our beginners class has grown nicely over the last few months and at this grading we had 12 juniors in attendance. The session was very well received with a number of techniques from the syllabus chosen at random to test the students on.
All students demonstrated a vast improvement in discipline and coordination as well as a good understanding of the basic aspects of the technical requirements required for the grades attempted. We are very proud of everyone!
