Passing the beginners syllabus is a major step forward in your progress.
We will not give you this belt for nothing.
Expect no charity.
No belts will be given without good, strong passes.
If you do not pass your grading first time, persevere.
It will take you as long as is needed. Be patient, but show tenacity also.
It is important for each student to recognise that you are only as good as the skills you can manifest.
