Year 7 pupil, Curtis-Jem Brooks was inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame at the National Brewery Centre in Burton this month.
He was nominated for the award my his Sensei for achieving his blackbelt and assisting in teaching other students.
His mum told us:
His conduct and attitude was also a contributing factor, whenever he fights he is always considerate of his opponent and sensitive to their feelings when they are upset at a loss or injury.
Curtis-Jem has been training at Redditch Martial Arts, formerly Winspers School of Blackbelts, since he was 3 and attends classes 4 times a week.
Well done Curtis-Jem!
