YOUNG students from Vale-based JSTKD Martial Arts & Fitness have showcased their skills in a highly successful grading session.

Aged between three and six, the children belong to the Ninja Kids and Tigers sections of the club and undertook their latest taekwondo grading at Murchfield Community Centre, Dinas Powys, to earn various belts and move onto the next training stage.

Head instructors Joseph Schembri and Brian Taylor said: “It’s great to see the children progressing so well.

"Our Ninjas and Tigers programme offers a young children’s martial art class based around energetic and exciting activities.

"Our aim is to put the fun back into physical fitness as well as building the children’s self-confidence.”

Classes are held throughout the Vale, including Barry, Sully and Rhoose, and a free introductory lesson is offered. For a full list of venues and classes visit or call 07711 234500.
