MARTIAL ARTS: Dozens of Ely Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do students bag their colour belts
Kwon-Do prodigies from Ely are celebrating after achieving their latest gradings.
Dozens of local students from the Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do travelled to King’s Lynn and showcased their skills in front of eighth Dan Tae Kwon-Do Master Brian Towndrow, who has years of fighting experience.
All students begin at white belt and work through yellow, green, blue and red before aiming for their black belt.
In order to achieve a black belt, students must practices for a minimum of three and a half years before going before a panel at a grading in Bristol.
The Ely students’ success means the local schools have had over 13,000 students passing colour belt gradings in its 29-year history.
Mark Farnham, who runs the schools, said: “A very well done to all of those students taking part in the latest gradings.”
