    Red Dragon Taekwondo - Discussion forum > Congratulations to all who graded Dec 18 2010

    We had a very successful grading on Saturday December the 18, 2010.
    Congratulations to all those who passed their examination for their colour belts, but as always, the end of year grading is our Black Belt Grading.

    Students being assessed for Black Belt had to endure 3 hours of testing. This included all:
    Self Defences,
    Kick and Blocks from Basic to Advanced Level,
    2 Board Breaks
    12 rounds of sparring including against 2 opponents
    Self Defence Sparring
    Advanced Kicking Drills (to time limit)
    4 rounds of One Step Sparring

    So Congratulations to our New First Dans:
    Paul Hamam
    Andrew Thatcher
    Spenser Golla
    Adam Coorey
    Zois Patelis

    Congratulations to our new Second Dan:
    Aline Khoury

    Thanks to our 9 Black Belts that graded the previous year I think our Black Belts outnumber our colour belts (good problem to have)...

    Please share your congratulations with them.

    On a second note, what are your thoughts of the grading, in terms of toughness, length, relevance etc., would love to hear your thoughts.

    Grading was great, was very nerve racking and challenging. Its good that there are so many Black belts now, would be great to have a Black belt only training class where we can focus on more advanced techniques etc

    Hi Andrew,

    Technically we do have a Black Belt only class, that is the last 30 minutes of our Saturday class (12:00 - 12:30). Do you think a seperate dedicated class would be better?

    Do you think we should do it weekly or less frequent?

    I think we should set up an opinion poll on the Facebook page, you think that's a good idea?

    Congratulations to all the new black belts. Remember to wear you belt with pride and know that Sir is extremely proud of you. The learning has only just started. Lead by example and inspire other students.
