Black Belt Hall of Fame
Over the years I have trained a lot of people. only a few manage to get to black belt level. I am very proud of them so below is a list of the students I'm most proud of reaching this achievement.
Each adult going for there black belt is given a written exam. The first Dan question that I gave them is ‘Why do I deserve to be a Black Belt?’ which was put to me on my first Black Belt Grading. The essay’s are quite personal and a lot of thought has gone into them so with their permission I want to share them with you. Enjoy and I hope that it also gives you some inspiration in your own training.
