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

The grading was held at their Dojo at Bottesford VC Hall 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 BKG chief instructor Sensei Graeme Walden with support from BKG club instructors Ian Simpson, and Peter Connolly.

Graeme said: “Everyone has trained very hard over the last few weeks and they all earned their new grades today. We have members young and old and all at varying levels with many parents training alongside their children.”

The club welcomes new members and has venues at Bottesford, Aslockton and Marston, with a brand new club at the village hall at Long Clawson. The first lesson is free of charge.
