A Scarborough girl has successfully completed her black belt grading in kickboxing after a tough two-day grading.

Twelve-year-old Holly Northgrave travelled to the Wuma headquarters in Cheltenham to undergo an intensive grading.

Undertaking the gruelling two-day grading with nine other adults, Holly then had to wait two months before hearing if she had done enough to receive her black belt.

Holly has been training with Scarborough kickboxing club Extreme Kickboxing since 2010 and is now the highest ranking junior member at the club, who are based at Compass Gym.
