third belt grading: 20th February 2015
a big well done for tonight, I know you were all very nervous, you have just taken the next step towards becoming a black belt in taekwondo, it doesn’t seem like a year, I can hardly believe it myself, well done to all my green belts liv, shay, kassie and James, and Oliver who tested for his first orange belt tonight, well done again guys a fantastic job.
when my students graded for their green belt and orange belt, I also retested the green belts on their previous two belts.
this is to ensure that they retain the knowledge and the skills that I have already that I’ve taught them.
