Weston Karate Club students all successfully passed at the largest grading of the year.

CONGRATULATIONS go to students from Weston Karate Club who participated in their Christmas grading at Hans Price Academy.

This was the largest grading this year with nine new beginners taking part in their first grading and as always it’s a nervous time. They all successfully and confidently demonstrated what they had learned in their weekly training sessions.

Gradings are held every three months and it is usual for junior grade students under 16 years to take a mon grade, which is half a belt or tag. This is normal in karate due to the number of skills required to achieve a full coloured belt.

However, on this occasion due to the high standards set by the students, the majority achieved a double grade and earned their full belt.

The instructors normally award a prize to the most improved student. On this occasion four students were singled out by the examiners because of their great enthusiasm and body control.

Karate teaches self-discipline, co-ordination, practical self defence techniques, promotes to build confidence and improves flexibility.
