Congratulations to all those who took part in the grading test. We had an extremely high standard of students who all performed at the highest level. Whilst we had many 'A' passes there were many more who were very close to getting one as well. Keep up the hard work and dedication to your training.
Special congratulation goes to our 3 new black tags. They have reached the top of the colour belt ladder and can now look forward to their black belt grading:
Kiyomi Mullings - Academy
Warren Koubeh - Academy
The grading test was of a very high standard and I am very happy with all the students that took part. I am also happy to announce that you all passed your grading test so well done.
We were also very lucky to have some special results as below. These were students who excelled in the eyes of Mr Archer. An 'A' Pass student is someone who has got over 80% in their test. A double promotion, which is very rare is a student that got over 90% in their test.

On Saturday 10th May we are going to run a sparathon at the Trident Academy to raise money for a friend of mine Daniela Bright.
Daniela was a member of the GTUK England Team when I was the coach and travelled around the UK and Europe competing. She moved to America to live and I recently found out that she has been diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer at the age of 29. She has no medical insurance that will cover this in America and because of the condition she was not allowed to fly back to the UK.
I am pleased to announce a 20 strong team going to the T-UK Scottish Championships. Lets enjoy our trip whether we win or lose and show great sportsmanship and respect to the officials throughout the championships.

We went to this competition with a small team of 5 competitors, 2 coaches and 1 official. It was the first competition of the year for most of the team so we had low expectations on winning medals. I am very happy to say that I was very happy with the results on the day. The competition was very strong and the categories were a good size. To reach the medal rounds you had to win at least to rounds. Here are the team members and results:
