Grading 20150131

Grading, 31 January 2015

For many of the students this was their first martial arts grading. All were very aware that they had put in the necessary training time and the only deciding factor between success and failure would be their own attitude and performance ...


  ... it would be up to them whether they were to pass or fail. 

Everybody put in 100% effort which was all that could be asked of them. But effort alone is not enough to pass because the examiners are looking for attitude, spirit and focus within correct execution of techniques:

Successful candidates are awarded their British Wadokai certificates and updated licences which form an official record of their training progress ... and of course that next belt!

And finally, a moment to relax ...

... and take pride in achievement

Before it all starts all over again!
