Four young martial artists from Tigers Shotokan Karate have earned their black belts.

Harry Taylor, Luke Boorman, Nicola Li and Christopher Gurney, all started at the club between the ages of six and seven, and have been training twice a week under the tutelage of 6th Dan, chief instructor Vando De-Bellis.

“All their hard work and commitment has truly paid off,” he said.
