Dan Grading Passes 
Sunday 24 November 
Students who train at Skipton Karate Centre, recently travelled to Cheshire to attempt their dan gradings.  Carrie Boon, Hannah Watts and Antony Jones were all taking 1st dan.  
If the student is to pass they have to show a wide range of techniques, ranging from kicking, punching and blocking combinations, kata, self-defence and fighting skills. 
All of which have to be performed with a high degree of skill. Each of the students had trained extremely hard for this and all of them deserve to pass. 
Both the students agreed that the worst part of the grading was waiting to start and waiting for their scores. 
They were very nervous as it means so much to them. Failure was not an option. 
A huge WELL DONE! To all
