Black belts awarded
Alanna Nesbitt, Oscar Williams, Tanisha Faulks, Isabel Mayo, Isaac Mayo and Joe Norton were all awarded their 1st Dan black belts.
Lily Brand was awarded her 2nd Dan.
This was the biggest black belt grading conducted since Strike moved into their purpose-built school in 2007.
Master Shane was very proud of the way the students conducted themselves on the day.
“All seven students showed enormous focus and physical ability demonstrating the skills they have learnt over a number of years,” he said.
Alanna Nesbitt was the youngest at only 10 years old to be awarded her black belt. She is a current member of the high-performance team representing Queensland at the national championships in October.
Family and friends came from as far away as Sydney to witness the grading.
