The rising star, who is sponsored by Fina Welding Fabrications Ltd, is now planning to go for his second dan exam next year.
Dad Thomas said: “Cody started his Taekwondo journey as a four year old boy and now eight years on he’s achieved his Black Belt first dan, which is an amazing achievement and down to his hard work, dedication, persistence and passion.
“Cody can wear his black v-neck Taekwondo suit with pride and honour.
“Cody would like to thank Tony Morgan and Gillian Fairbrother for helping and guiding him to make this happen, and to family friends and training partners too.”
