July Grading Results


Congratulations to all Sunshine Coast students who passed gradings today, Saturday 18th July.  It was wonderful to see so many people stepping up for gradings so well prepared.  As a result we are pleased to say that everyone passed today.

Normally it’s not the case that everyone passes gradings.  If you’re not well prepared or if you don’t perform on the day, it’s safe to expect that you will not pass your grading.  But today, that certainly was not the case.  In fact, today there were quite a few people who moved up the ranks more than one step.  And a few at the higher levels too, which is quite rare normally.  But if people are putting in the work we’re not going to hold them back.

These former Little Champions moving up a few levels for their first grading in our karate kids program:

  • Jake Fisher (11th Kyu)
  • Patrick Edwards (9th Kyu)

And a big congratulations to these students who double graded today:

  • Kate Killion (10th Kyu)
  • Richard Garnett (9th Kyu)
  • Tracey Eley (7th Kyu)
  • Tiahni Eley (7th Kyu)
  • Jack Graham (2nd Kyu)

And a special mention to Sam Hunt, triple grading to 2nd Kyu.
