INTA Black Belt Grading - Summer 2017
The Irish National Taekwon-Do Association (INTA) held their annual summer black belt grading in the Citywest Hotel on 10 June. In the morning 13 students presented themselves for grading to first Degree. Master Donnelly (7th Degree) led the grading panel of five, which also included Master Fagan (7th Degree).
At noon four first degree students and one second degree student tested for their next Dan grade. The panel consisted of Master O'Toole (8th Degree, President of the INTA), Master Douglas (8th Degree, Vice-President of the INTA) and Master Martin (8th Degree).
After both panels' deliberation Master O'Toole presented 10 students their first Degree Black Belt, and congratulated four new 2nd Degree and one new 3rd Degree black belt on their promotion.
Congratulations to all that passed.
Master Martin and Master Fagan were promoted during the IIC in Paris in November 2016. In a special moment after today's grading, Master O'Toole presented both Masters their new certificate.
