Aikido Kenshin-Kai’s very first grading was held on the 25th June for the kids, and 2nd July for the grown ups! Of the grading, Kelly Sensei had this to say:

“I’m delighted to see that the children who graded were able to execute the techniques that were shared with them all these months. From the smiles on their own faces, I know they actually enjoyed the grading, and that makes me happy too. A lot of the credit goes to the instructors and leaders who have patiently guided these children.

As for the adults, I know that they have been training hard for this grading, and it showed.  I am most impressed by how they have approached their grading with great enthusiasm. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone and anyone who has, in one way or another, made it possible for our first grading to proceed as smoothly as it did.”
