There is a fantastic picture of nine of our Black Belts (courtesy of Teah Pope) and the article explains that a magnificent seven were graded by Examiners Sensei Sherry (9th Dan) and Sensei Brennan (8th Dan) at Torbay. Ian, Matthew and Ben were awarded their 1st Dan, whilst quartet Lisa, Wayne, Megan and Connor were awarded their 2nd Dans. It also mentions duo Alastair Ward (1st Dan) Melvyn Tang (2nd Dan) who passed at Abingdon a few weeks earlier.
The article is packed full of information and also talks about the success Anya Dunbar, Alex Lockett and Jamie Lottering had at the Train with the Champions Kata Competition bringing home two Golds and A bronze.
