Year 7 Ollie Roper - Black Belt
Year 7 student Ollie Roper went to Bath on Saturday to attempt for his Shodan, Karate black belt, 1st Dan.
He trained and graded under Sensei Andy Sherry (9th Dan), the UK’s top instructor, and Sensei Bob Poynton (8th Dan). And he passed with flying colours! Ollie started Karate in August 2015, and this is a culmination of almost 4 years of hard work and a huge achievement for a 12 year old.
