A WISBECH Taekwondo instructor has earned his sixth degree Black Belt qualification after completing a gruelling grading assessment in Hereford.

Anthony Carter, 48, who trains students at Hudson Leisure Centre, Wisbech, was awarded his sixth Dan by Senior Master Wayne Brown, of Windsor, aided by Master David Dykes, of Hereford.

He completed 23 out of the 24 Taekwondo patterns, successfully breaking a house brick with his hand, a three inch board with his foot, a two inch board with his hand and a one inch board demonstrating the air break technique with his hand and foot.

He also had to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of Korean and the history, tenets and techniques of Taekwondo.

Carter said: “I look forward to many more years helping the people of Wisbech learn this wonderful self-defence discpline and anyone is welcome to join me - the first lesson is always free.

“Just turn up in something comfortable and join us. It’s fun too.”
