Sheffield Tae Kwan Do have just achieved their 215th black belt after an amazing 26 years in operation.

Junior student, 13-year-old Edward Lee, trained for four years to gain his second dan, after taking his black belt grades at the Tae Kwon Do Association of Great Briton academy in Bristol.

They are coached by Graham Churchill, 7th Dan instructor for Sheffield, who founded the city class in January 1990 and has been teaching for 26 years.

It takes three and a half years minimum to grade to black belt, and Edward was accompanied by five other clubmates at the TAGB Academy, who all gained first dan,

Mark Lee achieved third dan while first dans went to 10-year-old Sammy Mughal, Awais Saddiq, 12, Sam Davies, 13, and 15-year-old Martha Dewey.
