29.12.2018 / Black belts examinations
Good job?For this year's last black belt grading, Sonkal sent four adepts. The grading took place on Sunday, December 2. in Brno. And who attended for higher degree? Šárka Šestáková aspired for I. Dan, Tereza Žilinská for II. Dan and Pavel Zavadil with Jan Dvořáček for III. Dan.
Among the biggest obstacles for the grading we can place very cold temperatures in Brno sports hall. It was necessary to stay permanently in motion to keep warm and prevent the risk of injury. All four Sonkal candidates did well in all parts of the exam due to their preparation which took several months and also due to internal Sonkal pre-grading. From all approximately thirty candidates only one was not successful at the grading. From my personal opinion - there could have been more unsuccessful adepts. Correction - SHOULD HAVE!
After announcement of the results, we asked grandmaster Hwang Ho-yong for group photo. Then I heard kind words from the grandmaster: "Ondra, today, Sonkal, good job." I am pleased that our education system works well and we can be proud of our results. I would like to pay back kind words to the grandmaster, because also makes good job and we from Sonkal try to take most from that to educate new students of our martial art - Taekwon-Do!
