1st Jyoshinmon Grading - 27-28 May 2017
First Jyoshinmon Grading for the year was held at the Honbu (main dojo) in New Lynn. We had the largest number of students grading so the event was scheduled over two days and grouped into 4 sessions according to Kyu grade.
On the Grading Panel were:
Shihan David Bennett
Sensei Beaty Bennett
Sensei Chris Bennett
Sensei Chante Betham
Sensei Darren Blomfield
Shodans assisting at the grading: Sevita Sabine, Zak Scott, Jojina Scott, Jose Castillo, Bruce and Ross Sabine, Harry Ng, Sian Scott.
Thank you to all those who helped on the day and with the sausage sizzle. Your support is always appreciated.
Congratulations to all the graders!
