"There is no doubt this is a very special school with fantastic facilities and fantastic teachers who make all the difference. It's just a shame that every school in the country cannot be like Bolton School."

Pupils Begin Their Black Belt Journey

Tuesday, 03 July 2012

Three students from Bolton School have started their journey to becoming a Black Belt at Karate.

Year 9 pupils Jack Holbrook, Nick Savage and Fiona Cooper all gained their orange belt in karate on 26th June at Rochdale Shotokan Karate Club. They were graded by Ohta Sensei (7th Dan) who is the Chief Instructor of the Japanese Karate Association in England.  The students had to show they were competent in kion, kata and kumite in order to achieve this internationally recognised award.

Bolton School Shotokan Karate Club began in January 2012 and has around 10 members. For more details or to join contact Mr Ormerod.
