Black Belt for Noah!

An incredible achievement by Noah M in Year 8, who completed the final stage of his first dan black belt grading in karate and is now officially Senpai Noah – meaning “senior student”.

Noah’s mum Lucy told us: “The grading is the culmination of a lot of hard work over the past year so we are super proud of him. The culmination was 40 consecutive fights and he was fighting adults including semi pros. It was brutal!

“He’s very proud of his achievement. The earliest photo of him when he was just four years old in his gi (uniform) highlights what a long journey it is to black belt.”
