Weston Karate Club held a successful autumn grading at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre.

CONGRATULATIONS go to all the successful students at their autumn grading which took place at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre, the home of Weston Karate Club.

It was an unusually busy grading for this time of year, with 18 members wishing to grade. Each student is examined individually on three disciplined controlled sections of karate.

The examination varies taking from 15 minutes for beginners to 45 minutes for higher grades. Two students stood out this time were Marcus and Callum, these two young boys showed great enthusiasm and body control.

On this occasion Sensei Kevin and Sensei Michelle, were assisted by Sensei Steve from London.
