Well done to all those that graded, some excellent grades from both Adults and Children. A special mention to Dave Parish and Steve Brereton on a demanding grading which had them working for over 90 minutes with a break of 2 minutes, a well deserved and hard earned brown belt.
Well done all and keep training, do not slack off. We will be having some fighting lessons on the Friday nights up until the Xmas close down, so get down to Beswick and make use of the Kumite mats. I know those that have been down on Fridays are enjoying the mats and the adults are enjoying being thrown about by one and other 🙂
The Following are the only club members who qualify for grading this time:
Attempting 8th Kyu (Yellow)
Olivia Sherman -Byrne
Attempting 7th Kyu (Orange)
Attempting 5th Kyu (Blue)
Attempting 3rd Kyu (Brown)
You should all know the requirements to enable you to attempt to grade and unfortunately some of you at the club have not fulfilled the below points
A, Managed to attend the required amount of lessons to grade
B, Do not know the syllabus to the required standard (see above, if you attend the lessons then this would not be an issue)
Congratulations to those that recently graded to 8th kyu. I am sure that they will agree that they had to put some hard work in on the day to be awarded a pass mark.It is always pleasing when you see the graders come away with a good sweat on and they know themselves that the belt has been earned and not just awarded.

For those that qualify, the club grading will take place on Saturday the 28th of November at Sporting Edge. You are reminded that it is your responsibility to make sure you have applied for your licence in good time… no licence, no grading. If in doubt see myself in club asap.
