Shotokan Karate Academy

Dan Grading Results

Saturday 25 May 2013

Several members of the Academy travelled to Kendal on Sunday 26th May 2013 on a gloriously sunny morning. They were attending one of the several KUGB Black and Brown Belt Courses which are free to members.

Excellent instruction was provided by Senseis Andy Sherry 9th Dan and Frank Brennan 7th Dan. As well as working on kihon and kumite, the brown belts focused on Bassai Dai and the black belts concentrated on Jitte and Nijushiho.

Following the training sessions, a large number of KUGB students took their dan gradings under the watchful eye of Sensei Sherry. Four of our junior members did fantastically well to achieve their shodans (1st dan black belt). Our congratulations to Aoife, Jonah, Ayoub and Youcef!
