TALENTED pupils from St Helena’s Church of England Primary School in Willoughby are celebrating after gaining their black belts in Kickboxing.

Inspirational young, Archie Goldsmith, eight, Mia Kendall, seven, and Jamie Dunnington, nine, gained the prestigious award, after training for several years with the Kendojo Black Belt Schools Club.

Teresa Kendall, owner and chief instructor, said: “The children worked very hard for their black belts. They have to train around three times a week working up to the day which involves a combination of push ups, squat thrusts, stomach crunches, 150 kicks and punches, pad work and more.”

The Kendojo Club has training centres in Louth and Alford but also provides training for a number of schools in the area.
