Aikido Gradings at MSMAS opens this Quarter’s Gradings .......

MSMAS Aikidoka opened the Grading Results for this Quarter, with our other Disciplines to follow ....


This week, the 1st Aikido Grading of 2008 was held by The Mid Sussex Martial Arts School, located just outside of Hayward’s Heath.

Nearly 25 adult ‘Kyu Grade’ Aikido Students at MSMAS were evaluated by the Grading Panel, resulting in passes for many of them right across the training spectrum. From complete Novices grading for the first time, to the more experienced Student moving in the middle ranges, plus the appointment of Pat McBride as a new Aikido Sempai (Senior Student).

“Although an Aikido Grading is held quarterly at MSMAS, it does not always result in Grade progress for the Students concerned. Grades are only issued when the high standards required to move on are met. This Quarter, to have so many Students moving up the Grades will, I am sure, act as a stimulus to others to try harder in their personal training, to try and emulate those who did pass.”
