On Friday Nite Chris, Tom, Bruce, Dave, Klaus, Jason and I attended for our grading at Extreme Chadstone. Everybody performed incredibly well demonstrating solid technique. Our head coach, John Donehue, awarded stripes to Chris, Tom, Dave and Klaus, brining them a step closer to a blue belt. Jason had three stripes added to his blue in an impressive display while Bruce had a stripe added to his blue after having his blue confirmed by Coach John Donhehue. I managed to get a bump to purple without even putting on a gi! It was truly a suprise and I was speechless afterward for some time. I have a passion for teaching and I was incredibly proud of all our guys. See you on the mat.
