2020 Autumn Grading

2020 Autumn Grading
23 March 2020 No Comments Gradings admin

This was a very special grading with the current events of the world and as it has turned out, our last major event for a while due to COVID-19.

We had a large number of students step up to grade. Some hadn’t graded for a while, others had stepped up from the Little Champions and others were just starting their karate journey. As an instructor we can sometimes get caught up in looking with to much of a critical eye as we look for ways to help our student improve. A grading can be a little bit different, yes we still need to apply a critical eye, but at the grading it is an opportunity to see just how much each student has learnt and grown since last time they stepped up.  This grading was one where I found myself often thinking “Wow, such and such has really improved”.  Whilst I try to keep a stoic face when conducting gradings I am sure the pride I was feeling inside must have been showing at times.
