Conducted by academy tutor Master Andrew Blinston 6th Dan, the event saw 67 local leadership students make their next grade throughout the day.
Belts and certificates were awarded by Master Blinston and presented to the students after each group’s graduation event.
Disciplines were demonstrated and tested in one-step sparring, self defence techniques, controlled sparring, patterns and destruction.
Master Blinston said: As a family of martial artists here at Lynx Academy, it really does give me great pressure to watch your progression and development as a student.
“You all have the true potential to be great black belt leaders and I can’t wait to see you all achieve your martial arts goals.”
