Dan Gradings - October 2011

Dan gradings take months of mental and physical preparation. You need to be physically fit, have good understanding of karate theory, and be able to perform your grading syllabus to a high standard.


Karate-ka need to understand their weaknesses prior to a grading and work hard on improving them, as the grading will expose any weaknesses.


That said, we are pleased to announce that the following karate-ka successfully passed their Dan gradings:


Ryan Sigward achieved Nidan (Second level Black belt)


Daniel Young achieved Nidan (Second level Black belt)


Commiserations to those that failed; the Dan grades are hard to pass but it is a true test of character to train hard and re-attempt the grading next time.
