I am over the moon to announce our first ever student to grade to black belt! Young Mr Gould has worked tirelessly over the last few, well.. years, to achieve his black belt. He trains 6 hours a week in WMA classes as well as spending hours of his own time to get here. He is a fantastic role model for the other junior and senior students, and it is a real pleasure and honour to see him with a black belt and new dobok around and on him. He has now paved the way for other students to start coming through the ranks and achieve that big goal, like the rest of the Gould clan that have supported him and trained alongside with the whole WMA family.
He is also been promoted to a junior assistant instructor, with his official PUMA assistant instructor qualification to start soon.
A massive well done to Mr Gould from myself, Mr Whitlock, and all of us at WMA… The journey has just begun, and the hard work starts now 😉
We will be having a WMA social/congratulations party on Saturday the 17th of October at the Beaufort pub in Stoke Gifford from 6 pm children, adults, family, friends, all are welcome. The official presentation evening will be on Sunday the 18th of October at The Holiday Inn, Filton Rd, Bristol, South Gloucestershire BS16 1QX email Mr Whitlock @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
