DAN GRADING

01/02/2018

On Thursday 1st February, four students from the Red Sun Dojo in Coppull took Dan Grade Examinations under the watchful eye of Red Sun Chief Instructor Peter Bibby, 6th Dan and visiting SKO Chief Instructor P.A.J. Handyside, 9th Dan.  After a very tough and gruelling examination, Dwayne Leach, Gary Lloyd and Jaxon Worrell passed Shodan whilst a very exhausted Gemma Holland passed Sandan despite being three months pregnant.  A very well done to you all.

SATURDAY 13TH JANUARY, 2018


On Saturday 17th January, 2018 two students from Red Sun travelled with the Yanagi Kai Squad to the E.K.F. National Kyu Grade & Junior Dan Grade Championships in Leicester.  After some fantastic performances battling through five rounds, Joe Harte became the first student from the Coppull Dojo to become the EKF National Kumite Champion​.  Isaac Whittle-Hooper also competed in the Kata and Kumite but was unlucky not to progress through the first rounds due to very large entries and a very high standard but gained some valuable experience.
