Brown and Black Belt Course and Dan Grading – 3rd December 2023

On Sunday 3 December 2023, SKC England hosted a Black & Brown Belt Course at Willesden, North West London, followed by a Black Belt grading. The students enjoyed the training led by Chairman and Chief Instructor Sensei Eric Pich and SKCE's senior Instructors. Technical advice was given to students to aid them with their forthcoming grading, as well as those not grading.

The Senseis concentrated on grading syllabuses as well as a variety of Katas and sparring sequences with a focus on supportive feedback to help each student understand what was expected of them in order to pass.

Each person grading gave their best, some students fell below the level, some were astonishing and some are undoubtedly stars of the future.
