Three young siblings from Amble have demonstrated their commitment and skill to be awarded their black belts in a mixed martial art.
Ellie, Adam and Joe Goodfellow secured the belts in American Kenpo, which is characterized by the use of quick hand strikes in rapid succession. The trio attend Hi Energy Martial Arts Academy, in Blyth.
The club has been established since 1994 and runs specialised classes for children from the age of four-years upwards.
Peter Wilson, master instructor, paid tribute to the efforts of Ellie, 10, Adam, nine, and Joe, seven.
He said: “They have done very well to achieve their black belts at their age. They have shown fantastic commitment.”
