We were very proud to award eight grade promotions yesterday evening following assessment at our Cleator dojo. As usual, everyone worked exceptionally hard to prepare for the event and it was a pleasure to see that work paying off.
A special mention goes to 6-year old Reggie McGrady who was unsuccessful at his last grading, but has been single-minded every week since to improve. And what an improvement it was - he should be very proud of himself, as I'm sure his parents are!
Also, special congratulations goes out to Christine Coleman, who I'm sure won't mind us mentioning that even at 69-years young, she is still pushing boundaries and taking on new challenges - what an inspiration!
Both Reggie and Christine clearly show that the benefits of traditional karate training can be enjoyed by pretty much everyone and exemplify perfectly the strong ethos we share at our dojo.
Congratulations to you all and see you back in class again soon :-)
