The Down Right Dragons karate class had a recent grading at the Welington Seido Dojo. Six students, all with Down syndrome, train every Sunday morning under the instruction of Sensei Ange and Senpai Anne. The students have been attending these classes for the last 10 to 12 years, the annual promotion is a celebration of their commitment and diligence in learning their kata. Over the years it has been a beautiful thing to see their confidence grow and independence develop in and outside of the dojo.
I’m very proud to say my son Daniel achieved his Brown belt at this grading, he really enjoys his Sunday morning practice.
