At AHK it takes on average 4 years of regular training to achieve first level black belt.
At our recent black belt grading of 2017, seven candidates endured 5 hours of training/examination and were successful in achieving the standard required.
One from Hitchin Karate club, four from Letchworth Karate club and two from Welwyn Garden City Karate club.
Three of our new black belts have been training for more than half their lives and four of them have other members of their family training with them!
Many Congratulations to them all, from Active Hertfordshire Karate (AHK)
