Christmas Dinner December 2007

Wednesday 5/Dec started out as a tense day for ten members of the Fudoshin Club - yep thats right, "grading" day. All ten passed their grading in front of Sensei Brigadier Graham Hopkins (4th Dan). After the grading we had a good turnout for dinner at Zizzi's in Camberley to celebrate and to reflect on another year of hard training and improvement.

Rob was telling everyone his 'joke' again this year (that's right the same joke as last year, and the year before, and the year before, ...).

Danielle was keeping her distance from Jim - they'd had to fight each other during their gradings and were now comfortable with the right 'fighting distance' from each other.

Harry was celebrating passing his grading but he was a bit disappointed that he didn't get to fight during his grading so he decided to vent his frustrations by beating-up Phil over dinner - very sociable!

Georgia was keen to have a picture with Rob and to get him back for all his 'ribbing' this year - looks like she got her revenge!
