2nd & 3rd Dan Grading
25th July 2009


Nineteen students from around the country attended ECKA's 2nd and 3rd Dan course on the 25th July. Nine of those students were there to attempt their next grade. Six of those were from the Tipton club showing that club's strength with it's high grade students.

A long course taken by Sensei Dev and Sensei Red took the students through many of the individual techniques for these high grades and also a lot of partner work to practice their application.

The grading was a great success and all students passed:
