A Taekwondo Star

A special visitor came to St Mark's today to present one of our pupils with his 1st Dan Black Belt. 
Our Year 5 child attends Matt Fiddes Martial Arts School.  He started when he was only 5 years old and now, 2 weeks before his 10th birthday, he passed his exam to achieve "1st Dan Black Belt" status. 
The exam consisted of a 3 hour gruelling physical process which included,
100 press ups, 100 sit ups, 5 minutes of star jumps, 100 squats, 100 martial arts techniques, some self defending sparring and then, when he was really tired, he has to do 10 hand drills without making a single mistake.
I think that this is a phenomenal achievement. Well Done!!
