Local Karate kids earn their stripes at grading event
WITH any exam come nerves, but 12 budding karate enthusiasts showed they wwere born to be the next Bruce Lee when put to the test for their 10th Kyu (Yellow Stripe) recently.
Each and every member of IWKR (Ireland Wadokai Karate-Do Remnei) who grade for their 10th Kyu are put through a number of basic techniques, combinations and blocks. Considering that the youngest member is as young as five years of age, it is surprising that such high standards are achieved.
With members training two or three times a week in Blackrock and Reaghstown, it is hardly surprising that Sensei Tommy Marrett 4th Dan and Sensei Mary Marcus 1st Dan were delighted to award all who participated in the grading exam with their 10th Kyu.
