Successful grading at Weston

Weston Karate Club held its last grading of the year at Hutton Moor sports centre.

WESTON Karate Club based at Hutton Moor, had their last grading of 2012 and have just finished for the Christmas break.

Some 24 students of ages ranging from seven-years-old took part and each student was assessed individually. Gradings are always a nervous time as it is the end of at least three months practice and it could all go wrong on the day.

It is usual for the club instructors to nominate the best student on the day. On this occasion, three students were nominated - Louis Sharp, Rhys Downey and Kiriaki Lagou.

Over the last few months, the club has seen interest in joining increase considerably. Karate is an ideal disciplined self-defence activity for all ages.
