On Sunday 3rd November 2019, ESKA and Westwood members attended the TSKUK Course and Black Belt Grading at the UEA Sportspark – Norwich. Following the 2 hour training course a grading took place in front of a panel including Sensei Alan Parrish 7th Dan, Sensei Jason Hitchings 6th Dan, Sensei Nathan Bond 5th Dan and Sensei Carol Parrish 4th Dan.
