Students from the Samurai Karate School were successful at a grading at Hudson Leisure Centre in Wisbech.

More than 50 pupils from the Lynn, Downham, Terrington and Wisbech Dojos attended.

The three-hour session proved a great success with 49 students achieving new grades under the watchful eye of the OSKA UK grading panel.

Thirteen students attempted their very first grade with 12 of these coming from the club’s new Dojos in Lynn and Downham.
