On Sunday 30th November 2014, over 50 E.S.K.K dojo members gathered at The Marchon Social Club in Whitehaven to undertake our final karate grade examination of the year.
As usual, the general standard was high and it was clear that many had spent the last few weeks training extra hard for the opportunity to challenge their next rank. As we move forward into a new syllabus and lesson structure from January, it was felt by the grading panel that the performances on the day had been a very fitting 'end of an era'.
The grading results are detailed below. Well done to everyone who challenged themselves as it is never an easy task and you done us all very proud! Special congratulations also goes to Alison and Warren Grice, who both attained 'Distinction' - a level reserved only for exceptional standards.
Finally, a big thank you to John, Lewis, Sophie and Jenny for their assistance, plus not forgetting all the seniors who attended to help support their fellow members...always upholding the positive qualities and camaraderie that makes our dojo so very special!
