Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do students have been tested at a colour belt grading for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic began.
Instructor Gary Plant said, “The students selected to grade were chosen because they are consistently showing a high standard of training during lessons. There are plenty of other students at the club who are working really hard but weren’t quite ready or didn’t quite have the same circumstances. So long as everyone is improving against their own goals and targets, that is our main motivation.”
Instructor Anna Bradford added, ‘The grading group were very nervous but they displayed good effort and skill. To get ready for a grading like this during the interruptions of lockdowns is not a small accomplishment. Hopefully this will be the first of many opportunities for progression and returning to normal.”
The club is based at the Edgar Davies Ground at Bridgnorth Rugby Club.
