I am pleased and honoured to inform you all that on Sunday the 12th October 5 LTSI members graded at the ITUK's Black Belt exam.
The LTSI has produced over 30 Black Belts to date but this one was an important one as firstly I personally achieved my life dream of passing on my skills to my first dauter lauren who has had to deal with epilepsi during her time training with me. Now she has come off the tablets and touch wood she has grown out of it.
Passing on the skill to the next generation is a massive achiement and I am pleased of this achievment.
The second majour goal I have now produced my first 4th Degree, The masters on the panel said the standard was very high from the LTSI members with all that passed esp for the senior grade Mr Stuart Smith.
Stuart has been with me since 1996 and stated with me as a whaite belt and has been a loyal member dedicated to the LTSI from its interception, I am proud to say I taught him and consider him not only as a loyal member but also a good friend. Congratulations stuart on your promotion now its time to learn som wicked patterns - Tae Kwon!
