Bedford and Bletchley Area Gradings - September 2011

The Bedford and Bletchley area kyu gradings were held recently. It was a good turnout at both venues and the standards were as high as ever. Sensei O'Reilly took the lead role at the Bletchley grading on Sunday.


Congratulations go out to all that passed - if you received comments on your grading, whether good or bad, take them on board and work on them positively when you return to your dojo. Just because you are now a higher grade does not mean that you can slow down your training, now is the time to step up that training and begin preparations for the next grading!

AREA TROPHY WINNERS

The area trophies were awarded to a member of each club. Trophies are awarded for many different reasons - attendance, punctuality, etiquette, dedication, attitude, and perseverance to name but a few. Maybe you helped a fellow karateka, helped inside or outside the dojo, have overcome a difficult situation... there are many reasons. If you did not win the trophy this time, congratulate the person that did and continue in your efforts to be a good karate student.


The winners were as follows:


CLUB TROPHY WINNERS

AMPTHILL JOSHUA LEWIS

BRICKHILL AMY ANZIVINO

BUSHFIELD CAMERON GOODWIN-HADDEN

CEDARS THOMAS NEWTON

CLAPHAM JAMES DILLEY

KEMPSTON ASIF TUTAKAHILL

NEWPORT PAGNELL ROSIE TOKASKI-MCLEAN

NEWTON LONGVILLE GARY COOK

WOLVERTON CONLON JONES

DAN GRADE DIPLOMAS

Also awarded at the gradings were the Dan grade diplomas to the students who had successfully completed their probation period after completing their grading.


After any Dan grading, the following six months is not a time for relaxing; it is a time for training harder, sharpening your skills and perfecting your techniques, your etiquette and your knowledge as it is not only the Sensei who are watching you. It's all the students of grades lower than yourself who are aspiring to reach the goals you have reached. You are an ambassador for CFTS and a role model, so keep up the good work!


Congratulations go to Hayley Kidby (Nidan), Andy Livesey, Vince Clark, Chloe Wilson, Alex Thomas and Louise Thomas (Shodans)
