Daniel was awarded his 1st Dan in Taekwondo after needing to retest in December.

Daniel is pure dedication & perseverance.
He has been training with SESMA for over 13 years and though he wasnt ready for gradings along his journey, he worked harder and kept going. So Proud of you Daniel.

Later in the day we had the Kickboxing Black Belt grading.
5 years ago we started our 1st Junior Kickboxing classes and a young Adrian started as a white belt and is now our 1st Junior Kickboxing Black Belt. 
Congrats to Peter who was awarded his 1st Dan and to Sensei Gavin who passed his 2nd Dan in Kickboxing.
