Combat Gym held its first grading of the New Year.

COMBAT Gym kicked off the New Year in style with their first grading presentation of 2013.

Twenty students, adults and juniors, took part in the grading and were all put through their paces and pushed to their limits. Youngest student Mollie Hobbs, aged four, showed incredible determination and spirit, completing the grading in fine form.

The young students, whose ages ranged from four to 11 years, impressed Master Kevin Ludick with their technique, discipline and effort. He said: “I’m very proud of them and they are definitely fighters of the future.”

Congratulations also go to the adults who, again showed exceptional technique and ability, setting the standards extremely high for their next grading.
