On Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th September 2021, ESKA and Westwood members attended the TSKUK Course and Black Belt Gradings in Norwich, Norfolk & Canvey Island, Essex. Following the 1 hour training course a grading took place in front of a panel including Sensei Alan Parrish 7th Dan, Sensei Nathan Bond 5th Dan, Sensei Mary Hitchings 4th Dan & Sensei Charlie Tarr 4th Dan.
