Huge congratulations to dojo members Simon and Shaun on being promoted to Shodan-Ho and earning the right to stand alongside our other 2022 candidates to challenge their black belt later this year!
Their grading was pretty intense and consisted of fundamental techniques and kata, combinations and pre-arranged drills, grappling and pad work, self-defence and sparring, plus a panel interview with Q&A. Being such a hot day made their challenge even more demanding.
We are always very proud to witness our members effort, commitment and dedication pay off in their development of skill, knowledge, character, physical conditioning and mental strength. Simon and Shaun certainly gave it their all and as such, thoroughly deserve this promotion.
Congratulations from us all and keep up the great work!
