Long Sutton and Spalding taekwondo students pass out with flying colours
Students from the Mark Farnham Schools of Taekwondo in Long Sutton and Spalding have earned their colours after tough tests.
Sixteen 16 students from the area, three based at Long Sutton and 13 in Spalding, reached the required standard in the martial art's colour belt grading exam.
Tabitha Cook (2nd Kup), Diego Bernasconi (8th Kup) and Dexter Campbell (9th Kup) were the successful trio from Long Sutton.
Sophie McFie (3rd Kup), Erin and Roishin Williams, Marco Martino (4th Kup), Isabel Bowser (5th Kup), Madison Kennedy, Lexi Budworth, Henry Matthews (6th Kup), Sophia Durward, James Watson, Erick Buia (7th Kup), Justina Kelly (8th Kup) and Lexi Baker (9th Kup) were the lucky 13 from Spalding.
Farnham said: "Gradings are conducted by 9th Dan Taekwondo Grand Masters from around the country who each have over 45 years' experience in the sport.
"All students start at white belt and work though their yellow, green, blue and red belt grades until they are ready to aim for their black belts in front of a panel of five, 9th Dan Grand Masters.
"A very well done to all the students who took part in the latest gradings and they will receive their belts at their own school."
