SKCE Black & Brown Belt Course & Dan Grading

Sunday, the 27th of June saw the very welcome return of our black and brown belt courses, followed up by a Dan grading for those hopeful Karateka looking to make the next step in their karate journey.

The course served as a nice (and timely!) reminder of the standard expected by Sensei Eric, not just for those grading but for everyone looking to improve.  It took a ‘ground upwards’ approach where the senior instructors demonstrated the importance of correct execution and economy of movement throughout Kihon, Kata and Kumite.  Building up to ensure that students understood the transition from one technique to another… 

The grading results spoke volumes and huge congratulations to the following new grades…
