Black Belt success
12:02pm Monday 2nd December 2013 in Sport
A LOCAL man recently gained his karate Black Belt after a rigorous and gruelling challenge.
Neil Warner asked his Instructor if he could Grade in the traditional manner for his Black Belt.
This request was accepted and Neil was subjected to two nights and the following day of a rigorous training and examination schedule by Chief Instructor Mike Blackborow, 5th Dan.
This culminated in Kumite – fighting opponents from many Martial Arts disiplines for a prolonged period. Neil aquitted himself with great courage and spirit and was awarded his first Black Belt there after.
Preseli Karate Clubs are grateful to Stuart Tyrie and the BJJ Pembroke fighters along with Max Chambers for providing high level opponents.
