On Sunday 24th all the ESKA students that were ready to grade gathered at the Stevenage Lifestyles Hall in Stevenage to attempt their next Kyu grading.

The day as normal started at 10am with a warm up run by Sempai Matthew Passingham including lots of ridiculous splits and press ups.
The day run exceptionally well, which is down the the help and support of the various black belts in attendance.
After the grading finished around 1:30pm a number of the examiners headed to the pub for a bite to eat and a well deserved orange juice ;-). We initially tried the Toby Carvery, but with a substantial queue between us and the food, we decided to go further afield to a firm favourite from the Beer Tour… The Rusty Gun.
Thank you to all the examiners and everyone that helped out on the day.
