Special Dan Course Grading Results 2104 - 4th October

The second of this year's Special Dan Courses took place at the the Sports Village in Bath University on Saturday 4th October.

The course was very well attended with the highest number of students taking higher dan gradings to date.

The Sports Village is a huge sprawling facility which caters for many sports and is always very busy with numerous athletes in intensive training, including Olympians.

The course is for KUGB Dan Grades only, and instructors Sensei Andy Sherry and Bob Poynton concentrated on the syllabus for those students taking Sandan gradings and above.

The standard was excellent with many KUGB stalwarts who continue to train and improve their technique and understanding of Karate.

Those grading included Ian MacLaren who at seventy two years of age passed Rokudan and still trains regularly despite many complex injuries.

Full results are listed below.

Many congratulations to you all.
