Melton Jujitsu held their summer grading last weekend at Jubilee Sports where 69 students from as young as four took their next belt.

Grading officers Craig Connell (6th Dan) and Emma Connell travelled down from Oldham to put the juniors and seniors through their paces and ensure their techniques were up to the right standard.

Many students gained merit and honour awards, reflecting their ability to carry out the moves to a high standard and show their commitment to regular training.

The young Tiger Cubs were graded by club instructors Sensei Steve Parkin, Antony Howell and Tanya Artingstall.

The club attracts students from age three upwards, teaching self defence, fitness and situational awareness, the attributes which the grading officers were looking for when reviewing their techniques.
