Well done to everyone who took their grading on the 25th September and to those who came to train whilst the gradings were happening. People always talk about taking their black belt gradings as being difficult but many forget those first few kyu gradings are terrifying in their own right as it is all very new and you haven’t yet learnt what to expect. We were very pleased with the standard shown and the amount of effort everyone has put in to reach this point. A special mention for Kayleigh Emmison who graded to 7th kyu.
Well done to everyone who took their gradings on Wednesday or Saturday. You all did very well and Sensei Sue, Sensei Richard and all the instructors were very pleased with the effort, standard and commitment shown.
On Wednesday 18th September 2019 the BWCSK September gradings were held at the Longbridge dojo with Senseis Sue Hession 4th dan, Richard Amuzu 4th dan, Faye Tonkinson 2nd dan in attendance on the panel with a guest appearance by Sensei Austin Birks 5th dan.
Everyone did very well and we were very pleased with the standard on display. A special mention for our two senior white belts who double graded to red belt.
Special congratulations to our newest yudansha. This evening as a culmination of years of dedication and hard work Elijah Farrel-Reid, Libby Conway, Natalia Bak and Rouédel Farrel-Reid passed their shodan (1st Dan) black belt grading. They all exhibited a very high standard whilst taking what is always a challenging and grueling examination.
We know how hard you have all worked to achieve this grade and on behalf of everyone at BWCSK and from Sensei Sue and Sensei Richard we would like to say very well done to you all.
We would also like to congratulate everyone who passed their kyu gradings this evening.… Read the rest
