On Saturday the 8th February we held a grading for students in the St-Helens area. This was a small grading and we had students attempting to grade from white belt to as far as blue belt.

It was a hard grading, candidates had to demonstrate in-depth knowledge behind the kata. As well as various applications for techniques.

Everyone worked extremely hard and was awarded there new belts.


Well done to the following students

Red Belt

Joel Cooper (Double Graded)

Lucas Manns

Ned Brougham


Green Belt

Leo Brougham


Blue Belt

Philipa Jackson

Harry Green

Kira Arnold


Keep working the new katas and kumite drills.
