Black Belts

To date, thirteen members past and present have achieved 1st Dan black belt passes, and a further nine awarded 2nd Dan, all of whom were examined by the Chief Instructor of the Karate Union of Great Britain.

We are very proud of every student who has successfully passed a Dan grading.
