A couple of things on this post to update everyone so a Blog title that will cover both. (My wit surprises even me sometimes.)

Firstly, a massive well done to everyone in the grading today. It never ceases to amaze me just how many levels we can all step our performances up by during this period and everyone put in very strong showings yet again. And without injury! Testimony to our collective skill and control. As ever, there are things to work on to get even better and the last grading of the year is only three months away so lets push for that!

Secondly, another reminder that the Newcomers session is coming up this Tuesday. All are welcome to come along, existing members should be there as a matter of course. No slacking after the grading! Bring friends, work colleagues, your mortal enemies, anyone you can drag along!

Lastly, and this ties up the witty title with a newcomers session; Biggest congratulations of the day must go to Fi, who is our very first female black belt and a bloomin’ amazing job she did too. Trust me, I was on the end of a lot of it. Very well done!

Welcome to the party pal! (Gold star goes to the first person to acknowledge the source of the quote.)
