Saturday and Sunday Gradings!
The club held several gradings over the weekend of 13-14 November.
Shihan Peter Smith examined the students and presented the certificates for Junior Warrior gradings, Mon White and Junior White (7th Kyu) gradings.
Junior Warrior allow young students to move in steps to Mon White and 7th Kyu. Successful Junior Warriors receive a club certificate from the examiner.
The club uses Mon to identify that the the student is half way to achieving the belt. The successful Mon White students demonstrated they know five of the ten steps needed to pass a 7th Kyu grading. As Mon White students they are able to wear a single red tab on their white belt to show their progress. Students that pass a Mon grading are presented with a club certificate.
Those that pass the 7th Kyu grading (10 steps) can wear two red tabs on their white belt and receive a club certificate and a certificate supplied by our governing body - NAKMAS.
