A good spirit

Everyone taking part in the competitive grading this weekend showed good spirit both in their fights and the way they conducted themselves about the mat. All of which led to a pleasent, relaxed atmosphere.

Three new Shodans

The grading at Goole saw 5 line-ups attempted amongst the male 1st kyus for 1st dan. Two of the lines were completed successfully, the third new 1st dan didn't complete his lineup but had accrued enough points to claim his black belt.

Ladies fight for promotion points

Unfortunately there weren't enough ladies to for lineups, so instead they fought each other for promotion points.
