Martial arts celebrations

Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do finished their martial arts year on a high with various reasons to celebrate. Firstly a group of 14 students passed their colour belt gradings under the judgement of Master Paresh Bhadeshia, who was himself recently promoted to 7th Degree Black Belt. All 14 students passed after a sharp, confident set of tae kwon-do sessions.

Instructors Anna Bradford and Gary Plant selected their Students of the Year for 2018; Tom Hardwidge won for the adults and Jack Childs for the children.

“We chose Tom because he had the highest grading scores across the club for 2018, and a flawless attitude where he is hungry to learn,” explains Bradford. “Jack battles with nerves before the gradings but seems to be beginning to see the potential and ability we see in him.” said Bradford.
