Another three months gone, another grading. The first grading of 2017 was an absolute success. A big number through to the next level with big performances all the way through. We have a very strong base to build on from the White IIs all the way up to Arnaud, our latest Brown Belt.
Stand out performance of the day goes to Jimmy who has finally figured out how to use his immense range to his advantage. So much so he was practically untouchable. As always small things to work on so keep up the great work guys. We go again in three months.
Lastly, big congratulations also goes to Leah and Ayla Barker, who took their first Bushin steps to becoming the ultimate fighters! We wait to see just how good they can become.

Grading is imminent, one lesson left before the big day on Sunday so make sure you are practicing like mad!
It will start at 2pm sharp so get there nice and early and warm up properly. Anyone else who wants to come along to watch or practice, feel free to.
