FANTASTIC OFFERS TO START AFTER THE LOCKDOWN NOW AVAILABLE!
It has been a very difficult year but we have continued our training throughout. These students have waited all year to take their Black Belt Grading and in October at Cardiff they got their chance. Very well done to Abbie Pritchard 2nd Dan, Oliver Thomas 1st Dan, Harry Lodge 1st Dan and Brynly Fleetwood 1st Dan
Also huge congratulations to Freya Roberts-Howie and Jonathan Webster who are now also 1st Dan Black Belts.
Pictured here with Master Peros 8th Dan.
Not only has Freya achieved her Black Belt but she is also our youngest ever student to do this beating a 14 year record.
If this was not enough she was awarded 'Best In Grading' by our association. This means out of everyone that graded that day the Master examiners decided Freya deserved the award for the best performance! A huge achievement at such a young age.
On Sunday August 2nd, a number of our students qualified to compete in this tournament by coming either 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the Wales area Championships.
In all there were over 900 T.A.G.B. junior students that took part and 330 of those qualified to the British Championships.
After some outstanding performances I am delighted to announce the medallists as follows with 2 new British Champions from our clubs.
Gold - Layla Young - Girls Yellow Belts
Gold - Lewis Byles - Boys Black Belts
Bronze - Adam Jackson - Boys Yellow Belts
Congratulations to you and of course to all that competed. You have done yourselves and the club very proud.
