Black Belt for Year 7 Student

Year 7 Wellacre student Adam has enjoyed incredible sporting success by achieving the first dan black belt in karate.

In martial arts, the black belt denotes the highest competence and Adam has been working hard for over 5 years to reach this grading.

At the grading in May, there were several areas of assessment including sparring, board breaking and a verbal appraisal on korean patterns, movements and their meaning.

Adam said:

“It was exciting to be assessed, but I was first to be called for every section! I was nervous to see if I’d passed.  I was really happy when my name was called out to receive my black belt and certificate.”

Adam is now determined to achieve the second dan black belt and he’ll start training straight away at his local karate club Trident Taekwon-Do Academy. Good luck Adam!
