Sabomnim Chris Lakerdis Successfully grading to His 4th Dan, Janet Ann Bennet, Ella Grunberger-Daniells and Rachael Stephens all passed their 3Dan and both Nicole and Avril Saballa graded to the 1st Dans. All did themselves proud and put on a fantastic poomsae display along with their Self Defence, Free Sparring, Board Breaking and Self Defence.
Not To be outdone, our coloured belts also did a fantastic job and some with some outstanding scores. Genesis Cook, one of our newest White belts took out the Best Grading Performance also.
The Day culminated with our end of year presentations as well with all students putting in a huge effort this year.
There were many ‘firsts’ today. one of which was our first time we utilised a ‘Panel’ grading. With special guest Master Wayne Mahoney joining our new Grading Panel.
