Suc­cess­ful grad­ing for taek­wondo stu­dents

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


A TO­TAL of 59 stu­dents from both the Air­lie Beach and Proser­pine clubs were as­sessed for their next belt level at the first gup (coloured belt) grad­ing for the year late last month.

There were 22 tigers (stu­dents aged 4-7), 29 ju­niors (ages 7-12) and 8 se­niors (aged 13+) – who all suc­cess­fully passed and ad­vanced to their next level or gup.

The grad­ing was con­ducted by head in­struc­tor and ex­am­iner, Vicky Gil­lam – 4th dan black belt, and as­sisted by 1st dan black belt in­struc­tors Jim and Bowie Hodges.

All the stu­dents have worked ex­tremely hard to get to this stage in their train­ing and there were some no­table achieve­ments on the day.

There was a di­rect pro­mo­tion to 9th gup for Sam Rogers and Rhyanna Zon­ruiter and dou­ble pro­mo­tions for Josh Jarvis, Josh Smith and Sam Cre­tan.

Also dou­ble grad­ing were se­niors Helen Sheehy and Sheri­dan Faletti.

The best grad­ing awards were awarded to Tyler Green­hill, Sam Cre­tan and Fy­o­dor Roganov for the tigers and Sam Rogers, Josh Jarvis, Zachary Foote and AJ Shoe­smith.
