04 Dec 2016 - Grading news - December 2016

On 19th November the Vale of York held a very successful Grading at which five of our members completed their forms and exercises to a very high standard, and were awarded their sashes.  Many congratulations to Margaret and Christine who graded for the first time to gain yellow sashes, also Ann and Jenny who were awarded Green sashes for the second grade. Pat now has her purple sash and is well on her Qigong journey. Our Graders were supported by members of our association and family who came along on the day to watch and congratulate them as they were awarded their sashes and certificates. The examiner for the Grading was Sifu Pat Brooks assisted by Sifu Sue Dixon.
