A Seaton martial arts expert travelled to the USA to achieve his 5th Degree Black Belt in Kenpo Dynamics

Amrik Singh’s grading session took place in Los Angeles in front of a panel consisting of professors and grandmasters teaching and training at the Martial Science University (MSU) in California.

He had to undergo eight hours of intensive practical and theoretical examination, while being observed and tested by his Instructor, Dr Ron Chapel, of LAPD, and the rest of the grading panel.

Now he has returned to Seaton with new and diverse knowledge from an array of combative styles - which he will be incorporating in his own Kenpo Dynamics.

Mr Singh is teaching at the Seaton Martial Arts Centre on Monday and Thursday, 7.30pm start.
