Happy new year! Welcome to 2012 and welcome back to Kempo at Angel Dojo. I hope everybody is refreshed and ready to meet the challenges of the new year. We had our first class of the year last week, and it was good to see so many of you back and ready to learn.
There will be gradings coming up soon, so make every effort to attend and practise your techniques. With any luck the dojo will soon be a much more colourful place as we get more tags on belts, and more full coloured belts. All it takes to make it to the next grade is to keep on attending and giving your best effort.
And on the topic of gradings, congratulations are due to Sensei Rob for passing his 5th Dan grading! This is a phenomenal achievement and means that Sensei Rob is one of the highest graded instructors in the UK!
