Luke Bottle was successfully graded on Saturday 29/09/12. He is a young man not quite 18 who has been training for six years.
He put on a strong display of Tamashiwari, demonstrating six techniques.
Followed by sparring assisted by Andrew Moore, Aaron, Josh Ransom, Steve Erixon, Darryn (a friend from Tang Soo Do ) and myself, this included two then three against one.
Then he performed Kata and a demonstration of his choice (Bokken).
I believe he was a bit sore the next day, - however that will simply show that he earned his way.
