It’s been a very long time since we held a shodan grading but on November 7th 2021 we did just that and what an examination it was,
Greg is the first to take our new Shodan test, During the lockdown our head coach Sue King Shihan revised the syllabus with the Yudansha,
Greg has been a student of the club for many years and it was wonderful to see him come in to his own, showcasing his style of ju-jitsu, he had cross trained heavily as of recent and worked hard towards his fitness, he was focused and driven to the task at hand,
his performance on the day was excellent ,It was a grueling and difficult grading but after a few hours and a few brushed an battered bodies he was presented the grade of Shodan,
We look forward to him coaching sessions and seeing how his training develops further.
