This is a few weeks late but a big congratulations that got promoted to a new belt on June 23. This was the 1st grading at Yorkdale Martial Arts Academy and it was a lot of fun and went really well. The day started off as expected with everybody slowly trickling in around 12 pm and we got everything start soon after that.
First up were the 2 hours of seminars, with Milkias Kidane and Micheal Aviado teaching the 2 basics lessons. At the same time the colour belts were in the advanced seminars by Roya Sawary and Kyle Pinder. 4 execllent seminars in 2 hours showing some great fundamentals and some unique advanced techniques. I hope to see these techniques being utilized by our students.
Next is the part we all look forward to, The Shark Tank and grading. The 1 hour shark tank is always tough but it’s a ton of fun. Well maybe not for everybody 🙂
