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.
