I would like to wish a deeply heartfelt congratulations to Peter Collier, who passed his 1st Dan black belt exam on Saturday 29th September 2018 under the supervision of Sensei Gary Swift 8th Dan Kyoshi and a panel of our esteemed yudansha (including yours truly).
We have had Peter in the class for many many years now. He’s shown absolute commitment to the club and to Wado as a whole, and I hope he continues to train and improve, and slowly pass on some of his knowledge to new students as a teacher.
Also grading were: our Horsham local Chris Holland, going for 1st Dan; Luke Spooner of the Cranleigh club, going for 1st Dan. We had James Latimer of Grey Wolf Karate successfully pass his 3rd Dan exam, and Mark Dupee of Shinwaryu Karatedo Sourdeval also achieve 3rd Dan.
This is only the beginning – I can’t wait to see what training has in store for Peter in the future 😉
See you in the dojo!
