Black and Brown Belt Course

Although Sunday 5th May 2013 happened to be a Bank Holiday weekend, this did not prevent over 150 SKCE members gathering at Ashmole Academy, Southgate for the first SKCE Black and Brown Belt course of the year.

The initial training was spilt into groups each taken by one of SKCE Technical Directors with particular focus on the kata and kumite syllabus which many of the students would be required to perform later that day to demonstrate whether or not they had reached the required grade standard.

After an intense series of interchanging between Senseis to each of the groups, SKCE version of the ‘Rotation’ system, a well deserved lunch break was taken.

After lunch 86 students were to face their ‘Everest’, the grading. The youngest taking a grade was a 7 year old girl and the oldest a 69 year old man which goes to show that SKCE’s ethos of karate is for everyone is certainly true, and both were successful along with a total of 53 other new Shodan’s and 4 new Nidans.

Congratulations to all who took part and the successful students were:-
