Have your say

Declan Cunningham has been presented with his first belt after successful passing his Fa-Gai-Ha-Jai grading.

The nine-year-old, who has only been training for four weeks, was graded by assistant and chief instructor Mike Jones and Leroy Arnold and tested on punching, kicking, kaitens and etiquette for their first grade as well as physical fitness.

Both instructors were impressed with his performance, enough so to present him with his belt.

Anyone interested in learning Fa-Gai-Ha-Jai should contact Leroy on 01359 251667, 07979 071125, email
