Belvoir Karate Group enjoyed another fantastic result their most recent grading – with a 100 per cent pass rate.

The grading was held at their Dojo at Bottesford VC Hall on Sunday and was an action-packed and sometimes intense day.

The students were tested on basic punches, kicks and combinations, kata and padwork, with the more experienced students also tested through several bouts of continuous fighting.

The grading was presided over by Sensei Graeme Walden with support from Senseis Ian Simpson, Claire Lowes and Peter Connolly.

BKG chief instructor Graeme Walden said it was a fantastic result: “Everyone has trained very hard and deserved the new grades. We have members at the start of their training and others nearing their black belts, which is very exciting.”

BKG currently has clubs at Bottesford, Aslockton and Marston, with a brand new venue at Long Clawson Village Hall.

The club welcomes all new members at any of its classes and the first lesson is free. Further details can be found at www.belvoirkarate.co.uk or call Graeme Walden on 01476 571677.
