Sensei Kym Reid
Vice president I.B.F. Australia.
President I.B.F. South Australia.
Graded to 2nd Dan by Rob Dobson (1986)
Graded to 6th Dan in Karate & Jujitsu AMAA & I.B.F. (2007)
NOW 4th Dan Szlagowski Karate
On Sunday 24/6/12 Kym travelled from South Australia to Freemans Reach in N.S.W., met with his peers of the S.K.A. and undertook his 4th Dan Grade.
In his demonstration he displayed his basic Szlagowski Karate roots also displayed Kata and showed the Jujitsu skills that he has learned and combined with his Karate.
Kym was assisted in his grading by myself (John Cook) and Luke Bottle 1st Kyu, Kym sends his thanks to Luke.
To travel over 1,000 kilometers then step into an unfamiliar Dojo and undertake a grade can only be done by a man who not only has the ability but also the confidance to do so.
Let there be no doubt - Sensei Kym Reid is a genuine instructer of the Szlagowski line and accepted as such by his peers.
Congratulations to the students of Sammyroo who successfully completed their grading’s on Wednesday 20/06/12.
