2015 has been a great year packed with hard work and great progress, and our students rounded it off with a fantastic set of gradings this December. We had several students grading for their very first time who are proud to leave their white belts behind them, and a good selection all the way up to the highest belts!
Lil' Dragons Jasmine Bumrah, Joshua Jackson, Joseph Mello and Joshua Lathangue all took their Lil' Dragon Black Belt grading on Sunday 12th December and all of them showed really good concentration and excellent technique. This a great achievement for these students and shows dedication, hard work and a fantastic attitude too!
The following day we had some fantastic displays from Peter Norton, Finley Dean and Instructor Daniel Hayles taking their brown belts, and Jenny Cade taking her brown stripe. The same afternoon, Senior Instructor Brendan Martin underwent several gruelling hours of testing before taking home a very hard-earned black belt.
Finally, a big congratulations to our BJJ team who also completed gradings this December. Jack Mathias, Henry Grimble and Harpreet Manku earned their blue belts, and both Higo Gomez Da Silva and BJJ Instructor Nick Fielding were awarded their purple belts - a fantastic achievement!
Well done to everyone who graded, you did the Academy proud!
