Black Belt Pre-Grading 11th March 2017
Thursday 16th March 2017
Pre-Grade Seminar March 2017
Fortitude Students came together on Saturday 11th March to pre-grade for Black Belt and above. Students were rigorously put through their paces, going over each pattern from Chon-Ji through to Choong Moo, nine patterns in total and Black Belts practiced up to nine further patterns dependant on their Dan... Mr Miles who is grading to 4th degree said he covered all nine of his Black Belt patterns at least 4 times each and then performed his 3rd degree patterns Sam Il, Yoo Sin and Choi Yong in front of Master Hodson VII.
Students were carefully corrected and coached by Master Hodson, Mr Simmonds, Mrs Hodson, Miss Andrews and Mrs Hansen to enable them to improve before they grade to Black Belt on 29th April 2017.
The 4 hour seminar has been very well received with students enhancing their skills further and taking on board particular areas needed for practice. 60+ students were in attendance with over 50 pre-grading; making the April 2017 Black Belt Grading our largest yet.
We wish all the students the very best of luck for the upcoming Belt Belt Grading and don't forget to keep asking for more from your Instructor, this is your time to absorb as much information as you can! We won't mind..:)
