The Saturday session was also an open training session. Present on the Grading Panel was Shihan Kevin Callan assisted by Sensei Shane Lalor and Sensei Ken Fitzpatrick. The IKK Life President Shihan Liam Keaveney 7th Dan was also in attendance.
At the end of a long hard day there was some disappointment for some and joy for others especially the IKKs newest Shodan Senpai Niall King of Galway dojo.
But this was not the end of the day as there was one final surprise in store for Shihan Kevin. Shihan Liam on behalf of the IFK announced Shihan Kevins promotion to Rokudan - 6th Dan. Congratulations to Shihan Kevin.
