Kingdom Black Belt Academies (KBBA) held a coloured belt grading test last Sunday (10th of March) in East Wemyss and had about 20 Students, all of whom were successful in their endeavours. The test included pattern movements (Tul), fixed sparring, free sparring, two against one sparring, power test against breaker boards and theory of Tae kwon do.

This time around there were 3 students aiming for their black tags (one grade below black belt) and several more going for red belt and blue belt. The results are as below:

Promoted to black tags were:  Bryan Jeffrey (25) – Lochgelly TKD, Eryn Rogers (15) – East Wemyss TKD and Lee Allison – Kirkland TKD

Promoted to red belt were Harris Anderson – Kirkland TKD, Jay Roger – East Wemyss TKD and Steven Adamson – Kirkland TKD

Promoted to blue belt were Kieran Reid – Kennoway TKD, Morgan Scott and Richard Roger  – Kirkland TKD and Aaron Bookner – Windygates TKD

Earning his blue tags was William Ramage – Kirkland TKD

Up to green tags went Robby Henderson, Abby Hannafin and Lewis Thomson from East Wemyss and Ryan Wood – Lochgelly TKD

Promoted to yellow belt were Mother and son Frieda and Jay Alsafar and Finn Pedder – Kennoway and Rory Smith – East Wemyss

KBBA senior instructors Peter Scott (5th dan) and Robert MacGregor (4th dan) were very happy at the standard of those presenting themselves for testing.

This should be an exciting year for KBBA as they have a number of activities planned:

  • The senior instructors will be training with 3 masters at the UKTF “Sabum Forum” in June.
  • KBBA plan to host 2 local competitions, as well as competing in “The Kings Cup” at the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow this month, the MSBA tournament nest month in Linlithgow and “The Gathering” in Perth in June.
  • They will be doing a further 3 coloured belt grading tests this year.
  • Several KBBA black belt candidates are hoping to be promoted at the end of March, with several more hoping to be ready for Septembers’ dan grading.

All KBBA Instructors have enhanced disclosure certificates, instructor certificates and current first aid qualifications.
