December 2019 Grading
We have been extremely busy in December with all students working hard for the December grading. Well done to everyone who participated.
Meanwhile behind the scenes our very own Sensei Marie has been working hard for her own grading showing that karate is a journey that is never complete. Many years after starting her journey Sensei Marie still practices all elements of our Dojo Kun. To strive for perfection of character. To be honest and sincere. To foster the spirit of perseverance. To be humble kind and polite. To refrain from violent behaviour. For those of us that have the honour of knowing Sensei Marie we know she has lived her life by these rules - she is passionate about spreading the word of karate and practices what she preaches. She has currently been examined by some leading karate examiners and has achieved the honour of being graded as 5th Dan. Senei Marie is pictured below with her certificate and examiners Shihan Chris Green and Shihan Steve Duffy.
We wish you all a very restful holiday and look forward to seeing you all again in January.
