FREYA Dodd, aged 16, from Beccles has become the third black belt to graduate from Bungay Taekwondo Club after passing her gruelling examination at the weekend.

Freya put in 100 per cent effort throughout the eight-hour GTUK grading held in Coventry. She has been training at Bungay Taekwondo Club based at Bungay High School for nearly four years and started in the free Wednesday class run as part of the school's extra curricular programme for students.

Clinton Gillett, the club instructor and head of design technology at the school, said: “Standards at the grading were very high and Freya shone over the other juniors taking their grading.

“This was re-inforced when one of the senior grading examiners came up to me at the end and asked if she was one of my students, and when I replied positively he said that Frey was the best student he saw grade all day.”

If you would like to train with these new black belts or have a go at this Olympic martial art come along to the high school on Tuesday or Thursday evenings from 7pm. The club is now recruiting and all beginners are welcome.
