Congratulations to Olle and Vincent that passed their grading for 5 kyū and to Arvid that graded to 7 kyū.
On Saturday the 9th of December the Swedish Shorinji Kempo Federation held a national Dan Examination. The grading test was held in Karlstad and the examiners was Anders Pettersson, 6 dan daikenshi, and Leif Kekonius, 5 dan seikenshi.
From our branch we had three that tested for junkenshi shodan (1 dan) and after one hour of written test and over three hours of technical test we had the result that they all passed.
Congratulations to Rickard Andersson, Alva Neu & Christer Enfors for receiving junkenshi shodan (1 dan), congratulations also to Peter Thorvald (shibu-cho in Skövde) that at this time passed his test for chukenshi sandan (3 dan).
