A KARATE coach from the region has achieved his 4th Dan Black Belt in Shotokan Karate.

He has been doing the martial art since 1998 and is the assistant instructor/coach at all the Stewartry karate clubs.  

Meanwhile, the Stewartry Karate Club Kyu belts grading took place at Kirkcudbright Academy and was a great success with over 40 students passing the next belt.
