Ethan & Tom Dan Grades

Ethan, requiring just one win to gain his second Dan, opted to continue and ended the day winning 7 contests all by Ippon, winning his line-up and then stopping two others in their lineups.   Ethan’s drop seoi-nage proved unstoppable, accounting for all but one of his throws for Ippon.

Tom, at the age of 17 and attending his first Dan grading produced a variety of techniques to also complete his line up and so pass the contest requirement for promotion to black belt.    Of the 15 lightweight competitors, Tom was the only one to achieve this feat.

Ethan & Tom also completed the theory examination for promotion to Dan grade with both scoring highly. 

All there hard work has paid off and it was a proud day for the club!
