There was more success for Midhurst’s flourishing taekwondo students when all 12 performed flawlessly in their latest grading session.

The run of success has continued following last month’s triumph at the South Eastern Regional Championships where Midhurst students won six medals.

Twelve martial arts students were put through their paces by a panel of six black belt experts, who tested them on techniques, sparring, fitness, theory and Korean language.

All passed with flying colours and will be presented with their new belts next week.

Their instructor Alan Burnell, said he was immensely proud.

“There were some stand-out performances,” he said.
