Leeds Shotokan Kyu Grading

11 Mar 2023

Leeds Shotokan students made the trip over to York on Saturday 11th March, with everyone ready to take their next grading under Sensei Billy Higgins, 8th Dan.

Sensei took the black and brown belts through an exceptional class covering advanced Kihon, Kata and Kumite!

The grading went exceptionally well with all of Leeds Shotokan students performing exceptionally well under the pressure of the grading environment.

Well done to everyone who made the trip over to York, and thank you to our friends over at York Elite for hosting us. Extra special congratulations must be sent to Angelos who managed to double grade right to red belt - well done!
