More news, no ads


Students from the 16 Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do have taken part in the next round of their quarterly colour belt grading examinations.

The gradings are conducted by ninth dan tae kwon-do grand masters from around the country, who each have more than 45 years of experience.

To take part in a grading a student needs to have worked for an allotted time and be up to a good standard for the belt they are taking.

Students all start at white belt and work though yellow, green, blue and red grades until they are ready to aim for their black belts, which they take in front of a panel of five ninth dan grandmaster examiners.

To get to this stage will take a minimum of three-and-a-half years depending on how well a student progresses.

The Mark Farnham Schools held their gradings at the Providence Street youth centre in King’s Lynn, where 91 students attended two events.

The students all achieved a 100 per cent pass rate with good grades in front of examiner grandmaster Ron Sergiew,

It makes a total of more than 14,500 students passing colour belt gradings within the schools in the last 34 years.
