BAA SURREY AREA GRADING - 25th November, 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 using the first hour to go over basics and applications and the second part for the students to prepare for their grading. It was a good sized class with 19 students actually on the mat.
After the class those who wanted to had a lunch break. 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. Adrian Tyndale headed the panel and the grading formally started at 13.00pm, 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. Adrian reassured those taking part, which helped them to settle. As the numbers of candidates attempting Dan grade was higher than usual, it was decided run the high grade katas first. There was a short break at about 15.15pm and by 16.00pm the grading was completed.
At the end of the grading each examiner summarised their view of the day’s performances, as a general comment. It was a good grading and to a high standard and all candidates were successful. The new grades were announced and congratulations given in the form of applause. A commemorative photo was taken and the BAA Licences were all signed and returned to the candidates. Well done to the new 2nd Dan black belts, Brian Watts, Tim McClean, Myles Glover, Sonya Poczoc and to 1st Dan Christope Courtin.

Overall a successful grading with candidates and examiners being happy with the venue. The next grading will be at Epsom on 25th May, 2008, full details are published on the website events calendar.
