Patrick gets his Red belt.

This Tuesday Patrick went from beginners belt (white) to 9th Kyu Red.

Patrick, it must be said, has had some trouble struggling with the required position of his legs for front stance (Zenkutsu Dachi), and he was also having trouble mastering 5 step sparring (Go Hon Kumite). However, he is very keen to learn and he put great effort into overcoming these problems. He had a great grading and one would never have known that he had been struggling. So the photo below shows Patrick in a good front stance!! Onwards and Upwards for Patrick!


Well Done Patrick!

Sensei Bill.
