Weston Karate Club students recently held their summer grading event.

STUDENTS from Weston Karate Club took part in their end of summer grading.

Part of the Grading is pair work (Kumite) which for junior students is a set routine they do with a partner, each person knowing the part they have to do. This encourages students to work together and help each other as well as to learn control.

One student was singled out by the instructors not only for his effort and attitude, but also his persistence. Reece Downey, who has been with the club for five years, has now achieved his brown belt.

Reece’s ambition is to achieve his black belt and become and instructor at the club. Chief instructor Kevin Roberts said that it is students like Reece that makes the club the friendly and welcoming place it is.
