On Sunday 22nd March we welcomed back a regular visitor in Sensei Garry Harford, 7th Dan, for our Club Grading. Sensei Harford was his usual inspirational self with a great training session in the morning for our Senior Grades in which he focussed on basic technique executed at a high level.

Training for our Kyu Grades started at 1pm followed by an intense grading for 43 York Elite Members. Everyone performed fantastically well on the day especially our most junior grades with 5 of our white belts advancing two grades to red belt; a great achievement and recognition for all of their hard training this year.

We'd like to extend our thanks to Sensei Harford again for a great day and look forward to seeing him later in the year.

The Karate-ka who graded were: Daniel Crabtree, Evren Erimhan, Jenny Fell, Suzanne Greening, Lucy Heslop, Amina Semic, Arthur Sharpe, Mia Spall, Oliver Arnold, Linda Dawson, Clementine Ensor, Ibraheem Hadrami, Sharon Harrison, Joe Heslop, Sajid Osman, Soheil Osman, Caroline Poels, Tarik Semic, Finley Ensor, Idris Hadrami, Isabelle Marron, Esme Sharpe, Aaron Clements, Toby Holliday, Maia Leites, Jocelin Leites, Isla Cordes, Max Fentiman, Jake Buckton, Nathaniel Clements, Cai Jackson, Ben Wedge, Sophie Fowler, Mark Grayson, Gracie Kilner, Mason Kilner, Matthew Poels, Daniel Cordes, Joshua Dagwell, Hugh Fowler, Thomas Howell, Charlotte Lines, Attila Rejto.
