Our new black belt

Congratulations to Reya Wilks (aged 11) who has become our latest student to pass the demanding black belt grading.  Reya has been committed and worked very hard over the last 5 years, starting off in our "little Ninja" class.  Having trained over 40 students to black belt level over the last 30 years, this is one of my most proudest achievements.  Well done Reya.



Grading success

Last weekend four of our students took their black belt gradings.  I'm very proud to say that they all passed.  Congratulations to Fern Alexander and James Drake passing to 2nd Dan and Joseph Hawkins and William Quinney passing to 1st Dan.  Well done after many years hard work and dedication.

Today we had a grading for some of our Little Ninjas.  They all passed and demonstrated some excellent techniques and only aged 4 to 6.
