Each year we hold grading seminars for students that are ready for promotion. It takes serious effort and commitment from students to reach the required level to pass a grading with us.
Check out details of the last Arun Aikido Club Grading 2015
Our next kyu and dan grading is to be arranged in 2016.
If you want to be considered for our next grading, then it is essential that you practice regularly. If you haven't completed enough mat hours, or the instructors decide that you are not ready yet, then you will not be asked to take part in our next grading.
Gradings are designed to test you, and the pressure can sometimes cause panic. It is very important to thoroughly know your techniques.
Arun Aikido Club News
The Arun Aikido Club held a grading seminar on 4th December 2014. Students worked very hard for several months in the build up, and the grading went very well. All students passed their grading tests.
Students should be proud, because it is very difficult to pass gradings with us, as our standards are so high. Many congratulations to...
Ajay Denny, Posy Wheeler, Maxie Wheeler, Charlie Powell, Roman Penzes
Grading certificates were awarded on 18th December 2014
Arun Aikido Club would like to extend our best wishes to Jack Keane, one of our junior students, who has recently moved to India to live. What a great opportunity for him to gather new life experiences.
Jack began training with us on 14th July 2011. He worked hard, and developed good aikido skills. We were impressed at how quickly he learnt the names of basic postures, breakfalls, and techniques.
Jack earned several badges, and passed 3 Gradings with us... 7th kyu yellow belt, 6th kyu green belt, and 5th kyu blue belt. In fact, another month or so, and he would have been taking his orange belt grading.
He also took part in several local Aikido demo's and club promotions.
Arun Aikido Club instructors and students would like to wish him every success in his new life in India. He will be away for about 2 years, and intends on continuing his Aikido training. We will miss jack, and hope he will consider coming back to us when he returns to the UK.
