Black belt success

Congratulations to Hannah and Denzel on attaining their 1st Dan Black Belts.

The gradings took place at the end of some 4 hours of Black and Brown belt training on the Isle of Wight on Sunday 10th February 2013.

Hannah (15) has trained at the Portchester Club for some six years, with the last three years being with the senior section. Denzel (14) is one of the original St Swithuns Primary School, Southsea, "after school club" members. Since moving on to the senior school some three years ago he has continued to return every Thursday to continue with his training. In addition Denzel trains at the main club.
