On Sunday the 26th of November 2017, The Eddie Kone academy of Jiu-Jitsu had its winter belt ceremony with over 50 students in attendance.
Professor Eddie Kone and his panel of black belts and assistants tested Mr Liam Wandi, Mr Shukie Lok and Mr Shaun Escoffery on both the technical, philosophical and mental aspects of jiu-jitsu. ( The Black Belt Exam).
At the end of the exam which lasted 5, hours all 3 students were promoted to the rank of Black Belt.
Also promoted were,
Mr James Gregory was promoted to the rank of red bar on his black belt.
Mr Zaid Williams was promoted to the rank of Brown Belt.
other academy students were also promoted to both the rank of Purple and Blue Belts.
To us at the Eddie Kone academy of jiu-jitsu, the coveted Black Belt symbolizes much more than a belt change, it symbolizes friendship, hard work, and our commitment to upholding the values of jiu-jitsu.
Congratulations to everyone who was promoted Your success is a reflection of your hard work and daily dedication to your study of jiu-Jitsu, its values & its philosophy.
Big thank you to Black belt Mark Bottom who travelled to assist us with the examination process.
and also thank you to Mr Seymour Yang ( Meerkatsu) & Mr Miad nadjafi who were also in attendance.
