Two new black belts were awarded at Weston Karate Club.

WESTON Karate Club ran the second brown and black belt course of the year, which lasts for two hours.

The course content can vary, but continues to focus on advanced understanding of karate applied to opponents and the skills required to progress.

Training at any level needs great care and respect for your opponent, but more so as the techniques become more complex. They are taken by chief instructor Kevin Roberts, 4th Dan, who started training some 40 years ago.

These special courses enable the club’s fellow instructors and many black belts to line up and train together. This was followed by a private black belt grading which only happens very occasional.

This time, two advanced students, Kiki and Josh, were both successful in attaining black belt 1st Dan.

Kiki has been training over four years and will be leaving the club soon, as she is about to start Southampton University. Josh has been with the club for nine years, starting when he was seven-years-old.
