What a massive day, our first ever black belt outside of the family and ex ABK/ZDK crew. Elijah White smashed all the syllabus criteria demonstrating a new level of defences, combination work and I don’t say this lightly, his kata was sensational. Highlight of the day was his take down on his defences demonstrating his advancement in cross training within martial arts styles.
Leone Abercrombie was surprised with her purple belt, which she didn’t realise she was grading for. Smashed the requirements and accepted the challenge when I said to her, do you want to do the 10 rounds of sparring to get your purple belt instead of a tip.
Proud moment and excellent work to Shane for putting in the work, Tyson Higgins for assisting with takedown and bjj requirements and Rod for taking photos and supporting the club.
