A big congratulations and well done to all who successfully passed their grading assessments at the Wigan Grading.

The grading was packed with enthusiastic Students from both Sensei Paul and Sensei Rays classes.

The atmosphere was great!! The grading panel headed up by myself (Sensei Paul) were very impressed with all the candidates, who put up a fantastic display of karate. We could not fault the assessment, each student who passed deserved their next belt.


A extra big well done to the 4 candidates who passed and achieved their 3rd Kyu brown belts!!

Emma Lawrence

Emma is a fantastic student who trains hard 3 times a week.  She is positive role model to younger members of the club.  She never gives up and continues to push her self each lesson.  WELL DONE EMMA!!


Sophie Mitchell

Sophie attends karate well basically any class she can get to.  She is another superstar who has made great progress this year.  She is extremely dedicated to her karate, sometimes coming straight from her rugby training to class, even knowing she is tired never shows it.   CONGRATULATIONS SOPHIE!!


Euan Corcoran

Its been a pleasure seeing this young mans karate and confidence grow this year.  He has come along way and is developed into a fantastic brown belt.  I am looking forward to watching what you achieve next year.

Rumour tells me that you fancy your self as one of the clubs junior instructors well we will sort a position out for you 🙂  WELL DONE AGAIN EUAN


Luica Lakstigala

Luica Joined us earlier this year from another club she had been attending for years.  She moved to us as we where closer to her home and she struggled to attended classes at her own club due to the traveling.

She has transitioned it to the Black Scorpion family very well.  She was put through her paces during the grading and pushed herself through her boundaries.  Another well deserved 3rd Kyu.  HARD WORK PAYS OFF!!


A big thank you as always to the parents and supporters who gave up their time today to support you on your journey to Black Belt.


Thankyou to our Junior Instructors, Assistant Instructors and the rest of the instructor team for their continued help in class and at the grading 🙂
