A Flitch Green Choi Kwang-Do club is celebrating after three of its students become the first from the outfit to earn their black belts.

Essex Choi Kwang-Do, a Korean martial art, formed in April 2011 and three members have just earned the top honour.

Helena Romanes School pupils Jem Tahsin and Hannah Begley, both 15 years old, and Elizabeth Moss, aged 13, graded in London in front of a panel of seven masters.

The club’s Tracy Begley said: “Essex Choi Kwang-Do would like to congratulate Jem, Hannah and Elizabeth.

“We are very proud of the students’ hard work and dedication as it is testament to their character that they have persevered for a number of years in order to achieve this level within the discipline.”

Essex Choi Kwang-Do currently has over 40 students.

The club trains at the Flitch Green Community Hall on Mondays.
