Grading 1st March 2011.

We held our second grading at the club tonight.  After the traditional warm up we worked through the syllabus, covering basic strikes, blocks and kicks.  This was followed by moving basics including san dan gi.  The grading candidates were then tested on kata Gekisai dai ichi, which looked strong despite some nerves showing in places.  With the technical part complete we moved onto padwork, light sparring and the fitness test of press ups, sit ups and "star jumps".

Many congratulations to Iain and Jo for passing their 8th kyu (orange belt) test.
