The day began with a two hour Grand Master Nicholls seminar, attended by over 100 participants, which was as extremely physically demanding. The guys then had very a short break before a four hour grading which included patterns, self defence sparring & power breaking. The expectations from the Master examiners were high, & I’m pleased to say that they all excelled in their indomitable spirit & gave 100% to everything that was thrown at them.

Some of the students then had a very short time to prepare before attending a banquet at the Hitlon Aztec West with Grand Master Nicholls where they were surprised to be presented with their results & new belts. The rest of the evening was left to relax & celebrate a very successful day.
