Teenager Melissa Reynolds,17, has become the first person at the Atlantic Kick Boxing Club in Barnstaple to gain a black belt in kick boxing since the club’s inception seven years ago .

Melissa joined the club when it started and has progressively worked her way up through the gradings to finally achieve first dan black belt from the national governing body of the sport.

To gain this accolade she had to fulfil all the requirements for physical and mental prowess and knowledge in the martial art in accordance with the conditions and regulations of the governing body. The Atlantic Kick Boxing club has seen a steady growth to between 30 and 40 members turning up for training each week.

Any one interested should contact coach Martin Sage on 07812473641.
