Norman Magua, lead instructor and 7th dan, explained that the grades consist of all required physical syllabus training including; self-defense, sparring, hand and kick techniques, breaking, theory and a thesis on all topics related to Taekwon-Do, which is also required to reach the 4th dan level.

“They have all made very good use of their achievements and have proven themselves worthy of this title after many years of dedication to the art,” he said. Magua and the club are very proud of them and wish them the best for their training for the next level, which will take at least 4 more years of dedicated training.
