BKA Grading 1st KYU

On Saturday 31st March there was an 1 kyu grading at Kodokan in Watford.

There were 25 applicants with 21 passing. Anatoli Alalins, Ilja Ivanov, Doug Punch and Hanri Le Roux were all awarded their 1 kyu. It was a good introduction to the grading process and everyone enjoyed it.

Feedback from the examiners was a bit hard to come by but Ilya was commended for his loud kiai and all four Hizen members were passed by all three of the judges on the panel.

Well done guy’s  100% pass rate.
