Congratulations to our Students of the Year – David Rowley (adult) and Jake Round (junior)! 

Dave has impressed us from day one with his attitude, hunger to learn and willingness to help others (especially the kids, who like to attack him). He’s also a gold medal winner and has been given an overall ‘A’ and a ‘good’ for his grading scores. 

Jake has always been a good student but he has really stepped it up this year – achieving his 2nd Dan, starting competitions at black belt (now that’s daunting!) and winning them too. He’s part of the GTI squad and has been selected for Budapest 2016. 

Both Dave and Jake were surprised to win, which is what we expected! 

Everyone in the club has had a great year and we want to say well done and thank you to all of you.
