At Pilsung Taekwondo, we had four new junior Black belts pass theirBritish Taekwondo National Dan Grading on 30th April 2016.

Dayne Sampson (17), Kasim Naveed (10), Kelsey Richards (9), Rickeem West (9) and Xander Richards (11) were pleased with their success and look forward to going one better next year and attaining their 2nd Dan. The group have been training for over 4 years and recently have stepped their training up to 3 sessions a week.

Raymond Richards, their Instructor, said “We really pushed these guys hard in preparing for this grading and they showed a tremendous amount of true grit and determination on the day.”
