Winter Gradings 2020
We are very happy to announce that we had a very successful grading weekend (31st October and 1st November), all of our students who went in for their pre-grading passed their grading! Due to the new COVID-19 restrictions, the grading was brought forward to the day of the pre-grading.
Congratulations to Eva Phelps who achieved her 10th Kyu, Martha Troyusen who achieved her 10th Kyu Advanced, Eddie Knoupe, Lucy Troyusen and Will Knoupe who achieved their 9th Kyu. Rosemary Gates achieved her 7th Kyu Advanced and Arthur Sanders and Joshua Hall achieved their 6th Kyu. Freddie Heffer double graded and achieved his 5th Kyu Advanced, and Arthur Kitchener and Madison Leaver achieved their 4th Kyu as well as Toby Healy who achieved his 3rd Kyu.
We also have a long awaited new senpai in the club, a massive well done to Senpai John who after seven hours achieved his 1st Dan black belt and the new title of Senpai – extremely well deserved, you have worked so hard over the past years and we are so grateful to call you one of our instructors.
Thank you, from the IKK Whitstable Team: Sensei Kevin, Senpai Emily, Senpai John, Lillie, Peter and Emmie.
