A very quick run through how you all did:
Lee, Kira, Louis & Finlay all had good gradings and graded to 12th Kyu (Orange belt + 1 Tag)
Emily Double grade to 11th Kyu (Orange Belt + 2 Tags)
Charlotte & Phoebe graded to 9th Kyu ( Red Belt + 1 Tag)
Jamie Pearson passed 1 1/2 gradings to (Red Belt + 2 Tags)
Jamie Bellerby really pulled the stops out and graded to 5th Kyu (Purple Belt), Koike Sensei marked your Kihon as very strong, excellent effort.
Josh and Abby I was amazed at your gradings, I felt that you both had a good chance at obtaining half an Adult grade, you both got a full adult grade. On top of that Josh's Kihon was marked as above average and Kumite as well above average. Abby's Kihon was marked well above average, super, very good ( I think Koike Sensei liked it) and Kumite well above average also. It is too easy to forget that Josh and Abby are only 10 and 11 respectively.

Bex, you have done a great job with your "Little Ninjas", you can be very proud of them.
