Words cannot describe what a truly amazing night PUMA presentation evening was on Saturday night! I felt completely humbled to receive my 5th degree passing with credit and also be awarded the best ‘Adult Spirit Award’. 

What made the night even more special was to stand alongside some of Chesterfield Tkd students who had also been promoted. Mr Paul Phillips 3rd Degree, Miss Kyla Johnson 1st Degree, Mr Thomas Bailey 1st Degree Jang Bong and Mr Aidan Bailey 1st Degree Jang Bong (Distinction).
PUMA North NCTKD also has a number of other student collect Degree grades and Accolades. Well done to Jean and Sam Smith, Amy and Lewis Stanyard, Olly Payne and Paul Wedgewood! Your hard work has been recognised!

Personally, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported me in the lead up to the grading. For the kind words of encouragement, and congratulations afterward. I am completely overwhelmed!

The 5th degree means a lot but the love and support from the PUMA family has blow me away!

Master Raymond Gayle and Master Mark Ogborne you have created the most wonderful organisation that I am privledged to be a part of! Thank you!

Congratulations to all the new Dan grades!
