Evolution Martial Arts held their Presentation and Fight Night Evening, which included four successful black belt gradings.
On top of this, £700 was also raised by a raffle, an auction and tickets purchased on the night - with the funds going to the non-profit kickboxing club.
In attendance at the evening was WAKO Kickboxing GB vice-president and head coach Neville Wray, who presented Evolution’s head coach Linda Baxter with a well deserved 4th Dan black belt.
Wray also presented three more black belts to competiotors who underwent a tough grading assessment in November.
Achieving her senior 2nd Dan black belt was 16-year-old Nesta Baxter, previously a junior black belt.
To complete the quartet Benjamin Watson and Kevin Hunter were presented with their 1st Dan black belts after a lot of hard work.
