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

Club Grading 12/02/11

The first Grading of 2011 breaks all previous records for the number of Students attempting new Grades at an SMA Club Grading. We also see Students grading for the first time from the Spooner Row Primary School Venue, with much success too. Saracen Martial Arts would like to wish them all a warm welcome and hope that all students under the Saracen umbrella had a successful day. Included in the collection of photos this time are some pictures from the Pre-Grading held in Attleborough at the Sports Hall the Saturday afternoon before the Grading. For more information on Pre Grading & Grading dates, go to Grading Info or ask your Instructor.
