TWO teenagers have been given a top honour for their kickboxing skills.

Alex Forrest and Greg Traviss, who both study Shin Tai at Combat Gym in Weston, gained their black belt qualification.

Their certificates were presented after a gruelling six-hour grading in which they had to show off their determination, skill and knowledge of the craft in front of peers.

Both 14-year-olds have been training under chief instructor Kevin Ludick since they were 10 and are the first junior students from the gym to achieve the award.
