Grading March 2024

Congratulations to all the Power Dragons who were awarded their new badges and belts this month!

Special congratulations to Gabriel on his red belt, Max on his yellow-stripe belt and Amelia on her yellow belt!

I should mention the red and red stripe belts. For those who graded, they all achieved two badges this month, instead of one! This shows how they all tried really hard, and this clearly comes across as they demonstrate their techniques.

Please note, students do not automatically pass their monthly badges. We expect to see consistent attendance and effort throughout the month. As students rise through the belts, they are also expected to practice their techniques at home.

Full results are below.
