the following students who received the grading awards.
Junior Grading Award - India Hateley
Senior Grading Award - Ryan Hateley
Kickboxing Award - Carolyn Childs
The Black Belt presentation evening was on Saturday 3rd October, again
at Derriford Health & Leisure. All the students who have passed this
year was there to receive their belt and celebrate passing their black belt
grading. Some of our younger black belts arrived in style in a stretched

We would like to congratulate two of the students who were presented
with awards. Mick Casey for the best essay and a special Tenets award,
which went to Hazel Macwhirter, who has overcome major events in her
