Black Belt Grading
On the 9th of November we were very lucky to have Kyoshi Alex Alt (chief Instructor of IGK Australia) over to grade 8 of our students to black belt. It was a very hard grading for the guys as the temperature was about 35 degrees and the grading ran for about 6 hours. The plan was to run the grading for longer, but with the heat and the effort that the guys put in, they were starting to break down. After the grading everyone celebrated at a dinner where they were presented with their black belts. Congratulations to Mike Hayward and Ryan Clarke on achieving their Shodan Grade and to Terry Dunne, Emily Dunne, Brodie Woods, Alan Cheng, Fraser Hayward and Michael Andrew for achieving their Shodan-Ho Grades. It was awesome to see a father/ daughter and a father /son combination grading together, a moment that they will never forget.
