Shotokan Karate London celebrated a 100 per cent pass rate as a total of 23 students successfully navigated their grading examinations.
Seven of the Shotokan students were invited to complete double gradings at the exams, which were supervised by Sensei Adel Ismail, 6th dan and head of the Japan Karate Association.
Robin Lewis provided the highlight of the day for the Old Street club, achieving the 1st kyu brown belt level which enables him to take the black belt exam within the next year.
The other double-graded students were Daniel Almendro (5th kyu purple) and Chiara Spano, Josh Pinhay, Ren Huan, Zhu Huilin and Martin Hojeberg (all 8th kyu red).
Toshimitsu Murai and Pedro Vergani (both 6th kyu green) were both cross-graded, while there were also single gradings at 7th kyu yellow for Yasmin Stewart, Xuan Luong, Michael Ghebrehiwet and Luca Warby.
