|So proud of our four new Blackbelts|
Sean Bryceland, Mark Mitchell, Raymond Paterson and Paul Anders Robertson pictured with International Instructor and Examiner Gerry Cahill sat their degree test in front of a panel of two World Masters and four International Examiners at their Grading in Fife on Saturday.
The test was technically and physically exhausting and lasted four hours. The test consisted of a Physical Test, Patterns, Technical Sparring and Techniques, Self Defence, Take Downs, Releases, Groundwork, Knife Defence, Special Techniques and a Power Test using wood to be broken by hand and foot. Each had to submit a bound thesis describing their journey in Taekwon Do and answering fifteen questions covering many aspects of their Martial Art.
Each of the four acquitted himself extremely well and were all praised for their power and expertise. Their degree was conferred on them by Masters Canty and Swift later in the day at a packed seminar.
