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.
