Another to secure a notable milestone was Charlotte Knight at Purple Belt level, and Alexandra Lopez Moreno also climbed another rung on the ladder at Blue Belt difficulty.

Each pupil is part of the John Lynn Black Belt Martial Arts Academy in Colwyn Bay, and they have already begun working hard in the hope of securing further distinctions in the future.

Mrs Hind, said: “Our young pupils are thriving with their co-curricular efforts across a wide range of different area, and this latest grading success for our Karate hopefuls is another fine example of their dedication and commitment.

“Ellie, Lucy, Charlotte, Alexandra and Svaksh should be rightfully proud of their achievements, as we all are here at Rydal Penrhos.”
