It was an intense six-hour examination but we're happy to report that everyone passed their grading. On behalf of Master S. Cariotis (7th Dan), congratulations to our graduates (Two 3rd Dans, four 2nd Dans, one First Dan and one 1st Gup) and a big thanks to everyone who came along to show support. Here are some highlights of the day ...

I shall never misuse Taekwondo
I shall be a champion of freedom and justice
I shall build a more peaceful world
