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.
