Our new black belt

Congratulations to Reya Wilks (aged 11) who has become our latest student to pass the demanding black belt grading.  Reya has been committed and worked very hard over the last 5 years, starting off in our "little Ninja" class.  Having trained over 40 students to black belt level over the last 30 years, this is one of my most proudest achievements.  Well done Reya.



Grading success

Last weekend four of our students took their black belt gradings.  I'm very proud to say that they all passed.  Congratulations to Fern Alexander and James Drake passing to 2nd Dan and Joseph Hawkins and William Quinney passing to 1st Dan.  Well done after many years hard work and dedication.

Today we had a grading for some of our Little Ninjas.  They all passed and demonstrated some excellent techniques and only aged 4 to 6.  



Our last lesson before the Christmas break will be on Tuesday 22 December.  Back on Tuesday 5 January 2016.  If you want to order some last minute goodies from Santa!.  See the catalogue and order through Sensei by 12 December.
