A massive congratulations to everyone who passed their black belt grading - 

A massive congratulations to everyone who passed their black belt grading last Saturday (23 November). After a long strenuous and mentally demanding grading, all our six inspiring members achieved their black belts and degrees. Our current black belts Chris, Mary, Harrison and Chrissy advanced to their 2nd Dan degree black belt while Koro and Zac shall now be wearing their newly graded junior black belts. Awesome work you guys! You all showed physical and mental toughness and for that, you all a rock star!

The Christchurch Olympic Taekwondo team would also like to express gratitude to Grandmaster Vijay Cchika who took charge of the test. Your time, guidance and input of knowledge are very much appreciated!
