9 new Black Belts!
A fantastic finale to this year's Technical Dan grading! After three separate days, over 7 months, we completed the Technical syllabus with a 'kata' workshop with Senior Examiner Jim Toland.
Nine new 1st Dan grades and six new kyu grades after the days work.
Everyone thoroughly earned and deserved their promotion. Some have to wait to complete 'time in grade' but the hard yards are now complete.
We firmly believe that this is only the beginning of the learning journey when 1st Dan is achieved.
Well done to everyone involved!
