Milton Keynes and Bedford Area Gradings - June 2013

Congratulations to all students who passed their kyu gradings. Generally the standard was good.


Remember to 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. It is worth remembering what Sensei Kidby said at the grading, “Practice because you do karate; not because you want to grade. You grade because you have practiced. You grade because you have become good enough to.”


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 differing reasons. Congratulations to all recipients who were:-
