The London Dojo had a very successful end to 2013, with two batches of students passing their respective gradings without a single student failing.
Firstly, on Saturday 7th December 2013, four London students passed their respective Dan gradings in front of a panel headed by Malcolm Phipps Sensei (8th Dan).
Peer Lustraeten (1st Dan), Chris Allen (1st Dan), Joydeep Shil (1st Dan) and Casper Mahoney (2nd Dan) all passed with flying colours. The pass rate for Dan gradings in Seishinkai is around 30% so it’s a fantastic reflection of the hard work, skill and determination of these four gentleman to pass in the manner that they did. Well done guys!
