Dan Grading Successes

Many congratulations to Hanya Kowalczuk (Okinawan Kobudo), Ben Furniss, Chris Glanville and Steve Hutton who achieved rank progression at the TradKA UK dan grading held at the Kaizen dojo on Sunday 9 December 2018.


Wonderful students from Sensei Jimmy Kirk’s dojo Kazoku No Karate, pressed, pushed, squatted and performed a variety of other activities to raise funds to enable the refurbishment of the second dojo at Kaizen Martial Arts Academy.

As a result Sensei Kirk was able to present a total of £469.50 to Sensei Jim Reece following the TradKA dan grading in Leeds on Sunday 9 December 2018.

Words alone cannot express the gratitude to those students.
