Judging Panel: John Hurley (5th Dan), Alex Buxton (3rd Dan), Jeff Archer (1st Dan)


This was a solid grading with good spirit from the grading hopefuls.


We welcome Carl Garner who assessed across from Shotokan to be awarded his Purple Belt in Higashi.


The performance of the day went to Liridona Spahija who once again produced a textbook grading. She impressed the judges so much that she double-graded from Orange Belt straight to Purple Belt. This is after she double-graded in her first grading as well. Two double-gradings have never been awarded to a student before in Luton HKK’s history.


Congratulations to everyone who graded!
