A huge congratulations to our 7 students who achieved their 1st and 2nd Degree Black Belts on Sunday 1st December 2019 – what an achievement! The grading involved 9 hours of training, during which they completed a 6 miles run, MMA training, sparring, 2 vs 1 sparring, freeforms, syllabus work and even more fitness work! They also completed 4 hours of teaching in our Ninja & Beginner classes. A special well done to James Roddy who is one of the first students at Area 51 Martial Arts & Tricking Academy to reach their 2nd Degree Black Belt! Also a big thank you to Newth who gave his morning to teach the students a class on MMA, and who also achieved his 2nd Degree Black! All belts to be awarded on our Christmas Show on 7th December!
