At the World Taekwondo Associations latest national Dan grading (07/04/2019) history
was made for the first time at Ji tae Elite Taekwondo. Master Frost entered two candidates for 3rd Dan and three candidates to grade to 4th Dan Master grade! and in true Ji tae form all our candidates were successful, well prepared and gave
everything they had to earn their stripes.
Promoted to 4th Dan; Master Jason Howard, Master Chris Harker
and Master Edward Larrington.
Promoted to 3rd Dan; Michael Cox and Sam Marshall.
The blackbelt grading introduced the use of body armor and padwork sparring exercises as well as the usual self defence sparring, kicking exercises and traditional poomsae. Our five candidates have trained long and
hard over the six months to prepare for the grading and the new introductions. The turn out of support for the fab five was also unparalleled, along with Master Frost was Masters Palmer, Arundale, Watson and Temple plus several senior and junior blackbelts
and a number of Kup grades. The day was truly exciting, rewarding and historic. congratulations to them all.
