We had our first of two annual black belt grading’s on Saturday 3rd March at our Livingston gym. Luckily the recent snow subsided and the grading was able to go ahead as planned. First up was a written exam, with both candidates being given 1 hour in which to complete. The second part was the practical test, a two hour test of their technical knowledge and ability of patterns, step sparring, self-defence and kicking, culminating in a series of board breaks using both hand and foot techniques.
We are very please to congratulate Mr. John Melrose on his promotion to 1st degree, and Mr. Colin Cupples on his promotion to 2nd Degree.
