Fantastic news from the Assoc Black Belt Grading last Sunday. All outstanding performances in Hakudakan style! in a tough long, grading (3-4 hours).

Sensei Gary promoted to 4th Dan (Senior Instructor) after a great performance.

Andy & Derek promoted to 1st Dan Black Belt with my blessing, well done Sensei’s Andy & Derek! They were so outstanding that is was decided that Sho Dan ho was not appropriate as they exceeded that big time.

I awarded Sensei Clive his 5 Dan (Master Level) with the blessing of the Association.

All great news for the club.

Sensei Barry
