Well done to everyone who stood up to be counted today for belt testing. Karate is no easy path to follow and our ranks are never given out lightly, which is why no matter what the outcome everyone who faces this challenge always deserves our deepest respect.
Congratulations to everyone who was successful (listed below) and to those who didn't manage to earn their grades today, remember that the key to success is tenacity - so be sure to come back, keep working hard and use this experience as a positive platform for growth.
Successful or unsuccessful, the reward is the same - more training. So we'll see you back in the dojo again soon :-)
Special congratulations go to Ian Sessford, Stuart Rigg and Sarah Hobbs for achieving first class passes for what were exceptional performances.
Big thanks to panel members and assistants who helped make the day run safe and smooth. Your enthusiastic support is always very much appreciated.
