14/10/05 - Black belt success for Bromyard

Bromyard School of Tae Kwon Do has a lot to shout about after another successful seminar and black belt testing early this month.

The club, which has classes in Bromyard, Malvern and Worcester, added two new black belts to its 11 strong instructors, both earning junior black belt status under the masters of the Chung Do Kwan.

Master Pan (7th Dan) and Master Caballero (5th Dan) headed the grading with Joe Rawle (4th Dan) and Julian Burton (3rd Dan) being invited to view this gruelling test of ability, precision and co-ordination with the masters demanding the highest standards at all times.

The grading was especially important to head instructor Julian Burton as his own son, Edward, passed his junior black belt at the age of ten after training since he was four years old.

The black belts who were promoted were Andrew Merrick 4th Dan (one of Julian Burton's original instructors), Neil Witts 2nd Dan, Joshua Brodie 1st Dan and Edward Burton 1st Dan.

Bromyard Tae Kwon Do prides itself in teaching a traditional style and providing top quality tuition from the age of four to mainstream classes with no age limit.
