Kai Smashes it to BLACK BELTGo Back
Black Belt a Formality for Kai
Kai Sweeting (14yrs), a member of Rochdale’s The DOJO Karate Centre on Castlemere Street passed his Black Belt last month. Kai is a multiple World Champion for his age group and trains at The DOJO 3 times a week. Sensei Ansari mentioned ‘I remember when Kai attended his first lesson, I told his mum that he would be World Champ. At first she didn’t believe me, but within 9 months he won the junior belts categories at the World Champs and since then his diligence has really paid off. He has won a multitude of National and International Competitions including many World Championships at brown/black belt categories for his age group. He is an exceptional student who is a natural and keen to learn and retain new information on anything related to martial arts. Passing his Black Belt seemed more of a formality for Kai rather than hard work as experienced by the usual candidates – I’m very proud of all his achievements. I’m sure Kai would also thanks his mum and grandparents for all the support they provide for him.’
Kai is also a Class Leader and helps guide younger members to achieve their goals at The DOJO.
