On Saturday 19 March 2011, the NLTKD held its Spring Coloured belt grading with Master Tony Sewell, 7th Dan (GTI Derby) as examiner. 28 students attended and thankfully all passed. Special mention to Catherine Henryanto who demonstrate great enthusiasm.
While the grading was going on, in another part of the Gladesmore Sprts center, we hosted the GTI Instructors Training course. The 2 day course held by GTI Chairman, Mr Bhadeshia (GTI Cheltenham) 5th Dan, is a course to help teach Assistant Instructors become fully qualified Instructors. We had 5 NLTKD Assistant Instructors attend the course. The course gives instructors teaching methods particular to taekwondo and martial arts in general.
