On sunday the 18th of July, five of my amazing young students managed to pass their 1st Dan cadet graduations. What made the grduation even more special was that I was allowed to take my 2nd dan graduation alongside them. It was a very hot and sweaty graduation and it was an honour to share the mats and graduate along side these amazing students of mine. Each one worked their socks off and made me a very proud instructor.
All of these students trained consistantly via Zoom during the Covid lockdowns and their efforts have been truly inspiring thoughout the pandemic. Hannah Mason, Daisy Burton, Jembe Worrell, Billy Boot & Sebastian Ford, Thank you for trying so hard and congratulations on gaining your black belts. Remember to be the role models that black belts are expected to be at all times and remember this is just the beginning of your learning in Karate.
