BAA SURREY AREA GRADING - 31st May, 2009

GRADING REPORT

The day started with a morning class at the New Malden Dojo. Twenty students attended and they practised for the final time before the grading. The class ended at 12noon and we all travelled over to Wandsworth on what was a hot and sunny day. Most people had arrived at the grading venue in Wandsworth by just after 1.30pm, 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 14.00pm, with all candidates demonstrating 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. The panel reassured those taking part, which helped them to settle. There two brown belts attempting Dan grade and 16 other kyu grades to examine, and 2 junior grades. They were dealt with first so that they could leave early. Congratulations to juniors Harvey Meara and Kristof Adams on a good grading.
At the end of the senior grading Arthur summarised his view of the day’s performances, as a general comment. It was a good grading but with some candidates needing a little more work to reach the required level as not all candidates were successful. The new grades were announced and congratulations given in the form of applause. At the end a batch of BAA & JAA Dan grade Certificates were presented to previously graded students. Unfortunately not all students were available so the remaining certificate will be presented at the end of the grading in November. A commemorative photo was taken and the BAA Licences were all signed and returned to the candidates. Well done to the new 1st Dan black belt, Lee Adams.

The next grading will be at Wandsworth again on 29th November, 2009, full details are published on the website events calendar. http://www.aikidouk.co.uk/2009.htm
