BAA SURREY AREA GRADING - 20th May, 2007

GRADING REPORT

The Sunday class at Sleeping Storm Aikido in Epsom ran as usual, starting at 10.00am and finishing at 12.00pm. Adrian supervised the class dealing mainly with preparation for the grading.  It was an average sized class with 17 students actually on the mat.
After the class those who wanted to had a lunch break, some sampling the food provided by Jill Tyndale. Most people had arrived by just after 12.30pm, so the the registration process was started.  Licences were checked and everyone was asked to fill in their Grading Sheets.  Arthur Austin headed the panel and the grading formally started at just after 13.00pm, with all candidates and their ukes demonstrating ukemi and then foot and hand movements.
The grading ran smoothly with each of the three examiners, Arthur Austin, Robert Austin & Adrian Tyndale having a batch of candidates to look at and record each technique.  Arthur reassured those taking part, which helped them to settle.  As the numbers of candidates attempting Dan grade was small, it was decided not to have a break.  By 15.15pm the grading was completed.
At the end of the grading Arthur summarised his view of the day’s performances, as a general comment.  They were praised for their efforts and explained that it was a good grading and to a high standard and that those that were not successful this time should try not to be too disappointed. The new grades were announced and congratulations given in the form of applause.
The BAA Licences were all signed sealed and returned to the candidates at the same time. 

Overall a successful grading with candidates and examiners being happy with the venue.  The next grading will be at Epsom on 26th November, 2007, full details published on the website events calendar.
