After 4 years of training and a gruelling 7 hour examination held in Coventry over the weekend Eleanor Kay (aged 17) from Bungay Taekwondo Club achieved a major life aim by passing her black belt.
Eleanor performed superbly in front of Grand Master Oldham and various other senior Dan grades in order to be awarded his highly coveted black belt.
She had to perform patterns, demonstrate techniques, perform free sparring and set sparring techniques, answer theory questions and submit a written thesis all topped off by performing various power destruction techniques through wood which required a great deal of practice as well as excellent technique and focus?
By passing her grading it takes the black belt tally at the club to 31 since it opened in 2003 and Clinton Gillett said, Eleanor smashed everything and demonstrated great determination and dedication, she is a humble and respectful student, but at the same time incredibly approachable and friendly to all other members of the club .
The club always needs new recruits who want to get their black belt in this Olympic Martial Art so please pop along to Bungay High School on Tuesday or Thursday from 7pm or check out the website www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk1
The photos show Eleanor with other members of the club at a sparring session gearing up for the GTUK British Championships on 2nd April 2016.

Saint-Laurent, Qu bec. 17 February, 2016. Air Canada signed a firm order for 45 CS300 Bombardier aircraft.Calin Rovinescu, President and Chief Executive Officer, Air Canada, along with members of his leadership team comprised of Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines and Michael Rousseau, Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer were hosted by Alain Bellemare, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier Inc. Alongside Bellemare to celebrate the signature, which opens a new chapter in the partnership between the two companies, were his colleagues from Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, Fred Cromer, President and Rob Dewar, Vice President, C Series Aircraft Program and members of their leadership teams.
We ve been carefully assessing the capabilities of Bombardier s C Series aircraft and its progress for some time and today we are very pleased to announce an agreement to acquire the CS300 for our mainline fleet, said Rovinescu. The C Series will be a key element of our on-going fleet renewal, which will result in Air Canada operating one of the world s youngest and most fuel efficient airline fleets.
With its optimal mainline performance range, superior economics, and greater seating capacity, the Canadian-built CS300 aircraft will allow us to compete more effectively, providing increased point-to-point service to domestic and transborder markets further afield, as well as feeding our network.
We re thrilled to welcome Air Canada as our first mainline, international carrier located in North America. A landmark order from a marquee and iconic customer like Air Canada is a very significant strategic marker for the C Series aircraft program and we re looking forward to further strengthening a relationship that spans 30 years, said Mr. Cromer.
The C Series aircraft has proven and exceeded its performance targets and can readily be used as a coast-to-coast mainline connector or to open direct flights to under-served destinations. Performance and exceptionally low operating costs are ultimately what make this plane a success and Air Canada is recognizing that the C Series aircraft was designed in line with evolving market requirements.
Our recent focus has been to add a large North American international network carrier to complement our orders in both Europe and Asia, and with Air Canada we are achieving our goal of creating a strong global footprint for the C Series aircraft, said Mr.Bellemare. We are bolstered and energized by Air Canada s confidence in the C Series aircraft program and very assured that the carrier s commitment which is one of the largest to date for this aircraft will be the catalyst for future orders in North America and around the world.
We have the best aircraft in the 100- to 150-seat class segment and the momentum continues to build as we introduce the C Series to potential customers.
