Congratulations to you and of course to all that competed. You have done yourselves and the club very proud.
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.
We had guest instructors at the academy for a one off special Kicking Seminar in January. Check out this taster video of the seminar!
