TEENAGE black belt Noah Evans continued to show why he is considered to be one of Britain’s young rising stars on the martial arts scene.
The 13-year-old Eastbourne Martial Art Centre student produced another outstanding display across the board at the ‘Martial Arts All Styles International Federation – UK Tournament’ held in Canterbury on Saturday.
Entered into six events in the Under 16’s category, Noah finished with podium places in all disciplines, which included three first places, one second and two thirds in a field of students of various martial arts backgrounds from all over the UK.
Noah gained his three first places in the disciplines of ‘Long Weapons Forms, Empty Hand Forms and Points Sparring’, attributing his success to the hours and hours of practice put in under the watchful eye of his Instructors at the Martial Arts Centre – Eastbourne.
The Martial Arts Centre’s busy week continued with the arrival from America of the founder of Kuk Sool Won, Grand Master In Hyuk Suh, to hold a seminar at the Eastbourne club prior to attending the Korean Martial Arts premier event of the year ‘the UK Tournament’ to be held in Liverpool this weekend.
Students of Kuk Sool schools from all over the south east and London gathered at the University of Brighton Denton Road campus for the three hour workshop .
The Grand Master was accompanied by four of the highest ranking Senior Masters within the Korean martial art of Kuk Sool Won.
Members from the ages of 5 to 65 were split into groups according to age and rank and treated to a mixture of self defence techniques especially reserved for the seminar training programme.
