We are blessed in our dojo to have so many hard working members who give it their all during every training session. They help inspire and encourage others so that everyone grows together. Our grading today showed not only high levels of spirit and determination, but also examples of the close family bond that makes what we do so very special.
There were some sterling performances, some inner demons battled, some results celebrated and as is inevitable at these events, a small number of disappointments too. However, these were accepted with heads held high and a sense of determination to fight again another day. The grading panel members couldn't be prouder!
Congratulations to everyone who challenged their rank today - you have our utmost respect.
Big thanks also to panel members and assistants who gave up their day to support the grading and helped to make sure that the schedule could run as smooth as possible. Your efforts were much appreciated.
