Yesterday (Saturday 20th May 2023) saw one of our most important events of the year - the Dan Shim Sa (Black Belt Test).
This is combined with a seminar for all Cho, Ee & Sam Dans (1st, 2nd & 3rd Dans), where the Masters took the Dan Students through elements of their syllabus in more detail. These Seminars are free & are a great way to get extra practice, additional teaching & to fill in any gaps in your knowledge. These Black Belts then stay on for the Dan Test to help & support the Dan Candidates as they go through their tests. Thanks to all this that attended to support their classmates - let's try to get more of you there for the next Dan Seminar & Test in November (Saturday 25th November - get the date in your diary now!)
Students from our Centre included:
Miss Lucy Jackson (Prestwich)
Mr Hardy Singh Taak (Prestwich)
Mr Oliver Garrity (Middleton)
Mr Jack Kelly (Oldham)
The should get their results over the next day or two so keep your fingers crossed for good news!
This Dan Shim Sa was a quietist affair with 3 students testing for Ee Dan (2nd Dan) and around 25 testing for Cho Dan (1st Dan) - a consequence of Covid. The next one should be a much more lively affair with around five times as many students potentially eligible to test - who goes depends on progress & attendance at class!
Photos & videos from the day have been uploaded to our Facebook page but here are a small selection from the event.
