Three Weston Warriors students passed their black belt grading at the club’s end of year examination.

WESTON Warriors conducted its end of year grading with three of the junior students taking the black belt examination.

Ethan Chew, Blake Goodare and Jake Kenny have been training with the club for over four years and chief instructor Stuart Davies 7th Dan was happy they were ready.

Instructor and current world champion, Lewis Mulhall, has been guiding these youngsters towards their goal of achieving black belts for a few years, while Stuart has conducted all of their belt gradings since they joined.

The black belt grading was a gruelling test of their character as well as their skill level.

Stuart said: “The grading was spot on and I am pleased and proud to award their belts. I am old school when it comes to grading and they have to train hard and be able to represent their club at that level.

“I don’t give grades away and these guys did themselves and the club proud. A massive well done goes to them and Lewis for his input.”
