A nine-year-old Beccles boy has become a first degree black belt.
Bailey English-Sutton started attending the Beccles and Loddon Kuk Sool Won school at the age of four, ahead of most children starting classes around age six.
And, after just over four years of hard work, dedication and training, he took his final three hour test on June 2 at Norwich UEA Sportspark.
He was then promoted the following day after taking part in the annual European Kuk Sool Won tournament and coming away with two bronze and one silver medals, totalling eight medals in the last four years.
Bailey was presented with his first degree black belt certificate by the Grand Master along with five other members from the Kuk Sool Won school, alongside other schools from around the country.

His mum Clair Sutton said she thought Bailey was one of the youngest in Britain to become a first degree black belt.
“It is an amazing achievement and something I am very proud of,” she said.
