Congratulations to all students who passed their kyu gradings!
For those going for 3rd kyu, you should know the Dojo Kun in both Japanese and English. Purple and purple/white belts should start learning it now, but it is there in your license book and on the website for any grade student to start learning.
The weeks following the grading should not be viewed as rest periods - your training must continue regardless. Remember Funakoshi Sensei's words on karate being like boiling water. Visit your dojo as often as possible and practice as the work for your next grading has begun already. To progress, from yellow belt onwards, a student should be attending twice a week.
For those students who were awarded the quarterly trophy it was a real red letter day. The trophies, as always, were given out for a multitude of different reasons. Congratulations to all recipients who were:-
