Congratulations to Donald Grant, who, wearing his post-Glastonbury tan and bedraggled knees, stepped up on to the Dan ladder today. "Long Overdue" indeed!  ;)

Ha ha, just seen the photo; look at my tiny little post-Glastonbury eyes :) !  Thanks to the Void for performing what was as much an autopsy as an exam on me.

I updated
http://kendama.co.uk/dan.html
http://kendama.co.uk/pre-dan.html and
http://kendama.co.uk/kyu.html
...for forum members who changed their grade in Toulouse. If you got a grade and want to be on the list... join the forum! :-)

I didn't get a photo of every exam pass, so if I missed you (and I think there are a couple of people who improved that I didn't get), then please PM me. Also, let me know if you can be more specific on your Moshi Kame or STB scores.

Thanks!
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

BKA exams for Pre-Dan and Dan grades have increased in price for 2014.

BUT they have stayed the same for BKA members.

Wow Void, that looks great!
How do you do that? If you have your dan, can you request this?
Good luck on the 6th, that's gonna be a nice certificate collection :-)
Kendama Belgium!
