The gradings are conducted by 9th Dan Tae Kwon-Do grand masters from around the country, who each have more than 40 years experience.

Mark said: “The grading on Sunday July (15) saw 137 of our students attend the three gradings on the day. Some children down to the age of five years were taking part.

“We achieved a 100 per cent pass rate, all students passed with good grades. The examiner on this occasion was Grand Master Dave Oliver 9th Dan.

“This makes a total of 13,866 students passing colour belt gradings with the schools in the last 30 years.
