To have one student grading to Black Belt is considered an achievement at many centres for martial art.

However, the Success4Life School based at Seaton Martial Arts Centre is celebrating no fewer than eight of their number achieving the land mark!

The testing was conducted on the first Saturday of the month at the centre.

Five of the youngsters to gain the coveted black belt were just nine-years-of-age!

They are now thought to be the youngest holders of the back belt in the county!

Amrik Singh, one of the coaches at the centre said: “It was a gruelling test for them all. There were tears determination and effort along the way. It was an awesome effort from the students showing the dedication to hard work, focus and determination. My heart felt congratulations go out to them all.”

The instructors at the success4life group Mr Amrik Singh, Mr Matt Palmer and Mrs Aurora Singh would like to thank all the students fro their hard work and for making us all proud of your achievements. For any information regarding this group please call Mr Singh on 07966 444321 or email him on
