Richard says “it is a real buzz to see one of your students young or old, who you know has worked so hard and shown so much commitment, achieve what they set out to do. I’ve watched many students take grades over the years. But when its one of your own students and you know how much it means to them to pass and be presented with a new belt, there is a sense of real pride. It is for that reason I teach my classes”
