Congratulations to everyone who took their grading yesterday. Whether successful or unsuccessful, the fact that you all stood up and faced the challenge is always commendable!
We ran from 10am to around 6pm and throughout the day we undertook a total of five examinations ranging from beginner, intermediate and advanced brown belt ranks. The grading panel were not only pleased to see a generally high standard, but were also inspired to see so much effort and determination on display from juniors, teens and adults alike.
On looking around the room, we could also see great examples of the heart-warming support and camaraderie that makes our dojo so very special. Every result was a team result and even though individual ranks may change, the ongoing friendship and unity between dojo members will always remain.
So here's to another successful grading and let's now get back into the dojo, train hard and aim to raise that standard even higher for next time :-)
