The Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do have seen 19 students of all ages from March and Wisbech take part in colour belt grading examinations.
Mark said: “The grading on Sunday July (15) saw 137 of our students attend the three gradings on the day. Some children down to the age of five years were taking part.
“We achieved a 100 per cent pass rate, all students passed with good grades. The examiner on this occasion was Grand Master Dave Oliver 9th Dan.
“This makes a total of 13,866 students passing colour belt gradings with the schools in the last 30 years.
“Students receive their grades and belts at presentations which are held at their own school.”
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 grade they are taking.
