Phoenix Judo Kwai has recently celebrated having Charlie Isbill who turned five at the beginning of January and has become what is thought to be one of the youngest judo students to hold his 1st Mon (Red Belt with one tab) grade.

Charlie, who became a member with the club in October 2014, had been training with the junior members to ensure that upon reaching his fifth birthday he would be ready for his examination earlier in January.

The picture shows some members with Charlie and his certificate, congratulating him on his achievement.

He is now busy training and practising for his next grade.

Phoenix Judo Kwai can be found at Reffley Community School and Nursery on Tuesday evenings, 6.30-8pm for juniors and 8-9.30pm for the senior class.
