From Friday 11 December – Sunday 13 December, Shihan went to Lismore to conduct the Black Belt Gradings and training for the dojo there. The Lismore crew always enjoy Shihan’s visits as much as he enjoys going there to teach the eager students.

CONGRATULATIONS to the new Black Belts from Lismore:
Shawn Sivewright
Dean Morgan
Reece prior
Richard Fleming

They all went well and Lismore dojo has now graded 16 people to 1st Dan since opening in 2002.

Sensei Dean Marshall, Marcus Duroux, Cristy Sulek, Ari Carr, Matt Tickle, Ben Morgan, Tim Prior and Michael Fleming were all on hand to help Shihan where ever he needed and fight the grading students.
