Students at the Ely branch of the Mark Farnham School of Tae Kwon-do are celebrating a successful round of belt grading examinations.

Dozens of pupils young and old moved up to their next belt after completing an exam in front of tae kwon-do masters at an event held in King’s Lynn, at the weekend.

Students all start at white belt and work though yellow, green, blue and red belt grades until they are ready to aim for their black belts.

The Ely school, which trains at the Paradise Centre, in Newnham Street, achieved a 100 per cent pass rate, with all students passing with good grades.

Anyone interested in learning tae kwon-do should contact Mark Farnham on 07771644460 or 01553 841880.
