Black Belt Grading and Celebration!



A fantastic way to end the year! Saturday began with our second Black Belt Grading for the year, and concluded with our Black Belt Celebration Dinner.

A Black Belt Grading is a high level event where our long time members are able to grade for the next level of Black Belt. As you can imagine, it's a great spectacle full of skill, passion and awesome performances. Thirteen members attended the Grading to level up, and each gave the Instructors multiple reasons to approve the new ranks! The entire group demonstrated good energy through their Kihap, and a good improvement in Self Defence and Step Sparring.

The Grading covered a wide variety of Technical, Self Defence, Sparring, Breaking and Poomsae aspects from our syllabus. A Black Belt Grading is a daunting and exhausting experience, but our members handled it with dignity and pride.

We would like to give a special thank you to our supporting members who came, watched and assisted in the Grading despite not being involved directly. We are a family at HDMA and love to see the support from everyone, and hope to see even more in the future!




Following the Grading, we held our annual Black Belt Celebration. It was a nice way to unwind and bond with our Black Belt Family after a long year. We always look forward to the event, this time hosted at Dural Terrace Chinese Cuisine. We had more than 30 guests attending and enjoying the night, from Juniors to Seniors.

We look forward to another event in the future with our constantly growing Black Belt Family, and hope that even more of you can join us in the future!

To all of our Colour Belts, we look forward to seeing you earn that Black Belt and come and join us for Dinner in Celebration!
