Awarded United Kingdom’s Top Martial Arts Club 03, 09,10,11 & 2012

Club Grading 08/05/10

With a compromised Late Winter (March) Grading date, due to a double booking of the Grading Venue, there were fewer than normal Grading Candidates for the Spring (May) Grading. The short Training period between Gradings reflected in the lower than normal pass marks. There were also far more partial pass marks than normal too. We’re sure the Instructors will turn this all round before the August Grading and normal service will be resumed, (no pressure Instructors !) with the expected high pass rate that has been witnessed at resent Gradings. This Grading also saw new Holding Areas made available to SMA. This means we as a Club incur more costs, however to have a small training area and a comfortable seating area for parents and  friends we feel as a Club this is  money  well  spent :)
