FANTASTIC OCTOBER OFFERS AVAILABLE FOR NEW BEGINNERS!
This last weekend on September 24th we had our latest Coloured Belt Grading with our grading examiner World Master Peros coming up from Cardiff to asses our students!
Once again congratulations to all that graded as we had 100% pass rate!
We had a record number of students taking part and also a record number of Advanced passes, so congratulations for all your hard work!
A special mention goes to Layla Young who won the award for 'Best in Grading'. Congratulations Layla, you performed brilliantly and this was her 7th Best in Grading Award!
After 4 years of training it was the time for Lily, Emily, Celyn and Ankush to grade for their Black Belts. We travelled down to Daventry to take part in the TAGB Black Belt Grading.
After a tough grading on the Saturday morning in front of the grading panel of 5 9th Dan Grandmasters they had to wait until the Monday morning to hear the results!
I was very pleased to tell them they were all successful in their grading and we have 4 new Black Belts at the club.
What a day we had at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival UK. Four of our club members were chosen to represent Team Wales at the tournament at the NEC in Birmingham. After months of hard training and weekly trips down to Welsh Squad training in Cardiff Mike Pritchard, Lewis Byles, Elinor Bonnett and Freya Roberts Howie were chosen.
They had to compete in Team patterns, Sparring and Board Breaking for the adults against teams from England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Mike with the mens team won Gold, Lewis with the boys team also won Gold, Freya and the girls team won Silver and Elinor and the ladies team won Bronze.
What a great day and achievement by them all and Team Wales. Here are the members of our club pictured with instructor Gareth Pritchard, who was officiating on the day.
Save the date in your diary September 10th 2022!
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.

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.
