Micky, Syra and Noah had a great grade, and surpassed all our expectations !

We are delighted to welcome them as ECKD Black Belts and look forward to them passing their skills on to all our students.

Anyone who attended the Grade could not fail to have been impressed by their attitude and 100% commitment.

Syra was suffering from an injury and was in pain but in true martial art spirit gritted her teeth and carried on to provide a fine performance. She deserves and gets our full respect.

Noah and Micky also performed flawlessly throughout the grade and I could not have wished for better examples of true martial art spirit.

I would like to mention a thank you to instructors Lola and Finlay who participated not only in making sure the Black Belt’s had everything to hand as they carried out their grade, but also held shields for them during the shield drills !

I must also give a big thank you to Yasmin, Michael Rodgers, Lola & Finlay who attended on the Sundays leading up to the Grade to help with their training. Their valuable insight made all the difference.

This selfless attitude is what set’s martial artist’s apart from ‘ordinary’ people, and I’m proud and humbled to be associated with all of them.

Finally, thank you to the students, Parents and Friends who attended the grade to cheer on the Black Belts and give their support. Although one would expect this it’s still gratifying to see students who take a keen interest in our ECKD school and what we do.
