He is responsible for numerous Black Belts and Kumite champions plus been a true ambassador for SEFKA ansd martial arts generally.

Senior Grading Requirements

SEFKA Chairman and Chief Instructor Trevor White has issued the following update, which takes immediate effect for senior Gradings (2nd Kyu to 3rd Dan)

All persons grading at a senior grading who are 18 years old and under will be required to perform all applicable kicks at head height.

Those over 18 will be expected to perform their kicks at the maximum height they can kick, but in all cases the height will be above belt height.

Exception to these requirements will be that the student is unable to perform the requirement due to injury, incapacity or other genuine reason. This must be highlighted to your senior instructor prior to the grading, so the panel are aware and can take it in to account.
