Black Belt for Stephanie!
In September, Elberry House’s Stephanie passed her black belt grading in Karate.
The grading took place in Plymouth and lasted over four and a half hours. It consisted of a vigorous warm up followed by a very intense grading session. On completion of the grading, Stephanie travelled to Exeter for a two-hour seminar where the group were told whether or not they had passed.
Stephanie now has 12-18 months to learn two new Katas and to improve upon her existing skills before she can grade for Shodan, which is the first Dan on the black belt.
Congratulations to Stephanie on her excellent achievement.
