No fewer than five Rydal Penrhos pupils achieved another step on the black belt ladder on Sunday, September 18 at Parc Eirias.
The karate kids, who are part of the Little Dragons class at John Lynn’s Black Belt Academy in Colwyn Bay, trained for three months leading up to the exam and were rewarded for their efforts after impressing judges.
Floyd Curtis and Dominic Chamberlain gained blue belt tabs, while Lucy Ranales-Griffiths and Ellie Knight gained purple belts.
Year 2 pupil William Cheesley rounded off the success by getting his hands on an orange belt.
All pupils will now be working towards future success under the guidance of Master Yoshi, an 8th dan black belt and owner of the karate school.
Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “Congratulations to all five pupils for their marvellous efforts as part of John Lynn’s Black Belt Academy.
“Learning a martial art is both demanding and rewarding in equal measure, and our pupils have shown a tremendous commitment to developing their skills over a prolonged period of time.
‘Everyone at Rydal Penrhos is very proud of them and I look forward to hearing about more success in the future.”
