Young pupils showed off their prowess in the sport of karate – and all 26 of the children passed with flying colours.

Sensei Tracy Pillar of the Chinto Karate Group held the grading for pupils from Stradbrook Primary Academy in Gorleston.

Tracy said: “The Chinto Karate group has had the pleasure of teaching the pupils karate for four years as part of their enrichment activities.

“It has been a pleasure working with the children and seeing their progress along the way. We are grateful for the support received from the enrichment leader Mr Adam Bell who has worked closely with the group enabling us to grade the children regularly.”

The next grading at the academy will be in a few weeks’ time where Tracy said hopefully they will gain their first brown belts. The group holds lessons on Wednesday evenings at the school.
