North Coast Grading – December 10, 2016

A Kyokushin Karate grading was held for KIMAA students of the Far North Coast on Saturday December 10th. Karateka of Lismore and Ballina dojos came together for this end of year event, both a test and a celebration of the year past.

Sensei Mark McFadden and Sensei Jon Ellis assessed the students while the actual grading was run by Sempai Wally Gray, Sempai Patricia Tan and Will Brook.

After the grading, Sensei Mark and Sensei Jon spoke about the North Coast achievements for the year in moving and dynamic speeches, followed by a presentation of awards, including Student of the Year. Light refreshments were then provided.

Congratulations to the North Coast students on their final big KIMAA event for the year.
