Over the weekends of the 11th and 18th March 2023 Birmingham & Weoley Castle Shotokan Karate along with our sister club Kenshin Shotokan Karate Club in Stetchford held the Kyu Grading examinations for March 2023. As usual we had students of all ages, grades and abilities testing themselves to continue their karate journey and hopefully advance in grade. We were very pleased with the effort everybody put in to give their best in what any of us who have graded know is a very stressful situation. So as instructors we would like to say well done to everybody who took their grading and congratulations to all those who passed.
We would like to thank all of the instructors and admin team who volunteer their time to help make this happen and organise things on the day. This grading we would like to give a special mention to Becky Clarke who came in on a landmark birthday to help out on the gradings. We had a little presentation of a card and cake for her and a rendition of Happy Birthday to mark the occasion before commencing the gradings and we wish her a happy birthday.
Below are a few pictures from the two days.
