Y & H Competitive Dan Grading 22 nd May 2016 @ Goole Leisure Centre

We had 10 Male 1st Kyus, 3 Male 1st Dans and 4 female 1st Kyus attending on the day.

The male 1st Kyu grading was held in the traditional format with 3 candidates gaining sufficient wins and points to warrant line-ups. Two candidates were successful in obtaining their Dan grades on the day and the third one just failed to maintain his stamina on the last match and had to be satisfied with a 40 point total for the day.

Two other candidates managed to acquire sufficient points to take their accumulated totals past 100 points and were also successful.

The three 1st Dans all fought each other for points towards their second Dans.

The four 1st Kyu women fought each other with one of them successfully gaining sufficient points for her 1st Dan.
