*** NEWS *** – Grading at English Kenpo Karate Association (EKKA) Welland Club.

November 10, 2016

On Saturday 5th November 2016 at our EKKA Welland Kenpo Karate Club we held a grading for student hoping to achieve their Junior White Belt Yellow Tag, Junior Yellow Belt Orange Tag and Senior Yellow Belt.

All our junior students underwent a tough examination by our EKKA instructors. Junior students were tested on their self-defence techniques, forms and set and sparring. All students performed really well. There were some great moment by some of our junior student where the effort put into the grading really did do the instructors proud.


Our senior students were rigorously examined and were thoroughly tested on their self-defence techniques, forms sets, 1 on 1 sparring, sparring against multiple opponents and a written examination. They were also able to performs forms and sets well above the level expected, a great demonstration of excellent capabilities, true determination and that practise, practise, practise really does pay off. Great example for our junior students to observe and follow.


A very well done to all that graded and passed. We are all very proud of you.

From the Board of Regents, and all at the English Kenpo Karate Association, congratulations! <Salute!>
