GRADING REPORT

The day started with a morning class at the Worcester Park Dojo. Ten students attended and they practised for the final time before the grading. The class ended just before midday to allow a short break and a snack lunch.

Everyone had arrived by 12.00noon, and 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, with all 13 candidates warming up and demonstrating foot and hand movements. The number in attendance was small, but more than expected.
The grading ran smoothly with each of the three examiners, Harvey Goodman 6th Dan, Arthur Austin 5th Dan & Adrian Tyndale 5th Dan having a batch of candidates to look at and record each technique. The panel reassured those taking part, which helped them to settle. Six students were attempting Dan grade and no junior grades were grading to senior.
At the end of the grading the examiners summarised their view of the day’s performances, as a general comment. More work is needed on balance breaking (Shichi-hon-no-kuzushi). It was a good grading with no unsuccessful candidates. The new grades were announced and congratulations given in the form of applause. At the end a commemorative photo was taken and the BAA Licences were all signed and returned to the candidates. Well done to all and especially to the successful Dan grades, Jason Galla-Barth, Apostolos Avlonitis, Peter Whiting, Martin Pain, Jonathon Clayson and Nick Clayson.
