Four new shodans
The International Shotokan Karate Federation (ISKF) Barbados now has four new Shodans.
Dakoda Walkes and Michael Roberts, along with two juniors, have been promoted after the federation recently held a grading for the ranks of Kyu and Dan.
Juniors Nathan Small and Aren Spencer were promoted as a total of 65 Karatekas faced grading in multiple Katas and Kumite. The Dan test consisted of Kihon, Kata and Kumite.
The Federation is currently preparing to train a full team of juniors, seniors and masters that will contest next year’s ISKF Pan American Karate Championships after it holds another grading in November. (JM/PR)
