A massive well done goes to the new Stoke Gifford degree grades. Ben Baker-Attwood, Callum Brown, Lucie Robertshaw & Fabrice Debart. All performed at a regional degree grading headed by Grand Master Nicholls, Miss Burridge & Mr Buxton in Speedwell, Bristol on Saturday 1st October 2016.
Fabrice Debart 1st Degree
Ben Baker-Attwood 3rd Degree
Callum Brown 3rd Degree
The day began with a two hour Grand Master Nicholls seminar, attended by over 100 participants, which was as extremely physically demanding. The guys then had very a short break before a four hour grading which included patterns, self defence sparring & power breaking. The expectations from the Master examiners were high, & I’m pleased to say that they all excelled in their indomitable spirit & gave 100% to everything that was thrown at them.
Some of the students then had a very short time to prepare before attending a banquet at the Future Inn with Grand Master Nicholls where they were surprised to be presented with their results & new belts. The rest of the evening was left to relax & celebrate a very successful day.
Congratulations to all.
Many thanks as always goes to Laura Robertshaw for her fantastic photos.
