Traditional martial arts tuition in Cornwall, UK.

Grading Results: November 2015

Two more black belts
Sensei Thompson took the class through a variety of kihon followed by ippon kumite practice and kata. Shihan Gilbert and Whale assisted by giving individual pointers until the group split and Shihan Whale ran the lower grades through some frenetic kihon while Shihan Gilbert took the seniors through some take-down techniques on the mats.

The grading panel consisted of Shihan Whale, Shihan Gilbert and Sensei Thompson, with Sempai Cook sitting in as an observer. Not everyone passed the grading which was a disappointment for the panel as they prefer that everyone reaches the required standard.

This who were successful were :-
Promoted to 8th Kyu, white belt
Jonty Brawn
Christelle Challand
Sarah Ewen

Promoted to 7th Kyu, yellow belt
Holly McGroary
Holly Johns
Sarah-Jane Sowerby

Promoted to 6th Kyu, orange belt
Adam Shutt
Harrison Songhurst

We also had two members taking the grade of Shodan and it is with great pleasure that the panel presented both Joel Cook and Zoe Knight with their black belts.
