Kickboxing grading for Ying Yang club

Saturday, October 22, 2011, 13:45

In September 28 students from the Ying Yang club participated and passed their grading in Kickboxing.

The grading itself had a duration of four hours in which the students were examined from instructors of other Kickboxing clubs. Such instructors are all members of the Malta Kickboxing Association (MKBA), and Ying Yang is a member as well. Even though all the Kickboxers started together, each group, depending on the Belt level, had a different time slot to do its grading.

As one group finished the others continued to do their techniques which increased in difficulty. Those grading for the Red Belts were asked to perform basic techniques and such level would increase to even jumping techniques. Each group finished its grading with the application of such techniques in sparring as well.

The students with their respective belts were Red Belts: Roxanne Herrigton, Rachelle Cutajar, Steve Dutton, Vittorio Batarse, Gianella Mifsud, Jason Mifsud, Triston Aguis, Melenie Azzopardi, Maurizio Scicluna, Brendon Gauci, Green Belts: Maria Seguna, Lee George, Darien Doneo, Bernice Casha, Matthew Grech, Glenn Aquilina, Joachin Mifsud Attard, Luke Formosa, Brian Farrugia, Purple Belts: Andrew Hillsdon, Nichollas Ellul, Joseph Dimech, Jonathan Psaila, Blue Belts: Isaac Chetcuti, Darren Micallef, Althea Vella, Courtney Vella, Jean Pierre Vella.

This was the third grading this year for the Ying Yang and one of the many Kickboxing activities that it takes part to. In December the club itself will organize a Kickboxing night in which Daniel “The Jet” Zarha will take part in his first Professional World Kickboxing Network (WKN) K1 Rules match with a Kickboxer from Portugal.
