6th Dahn Master Darren Hart
JKN Joshua Ding
Joshua was born in 2004 and attended his first Kuk Sool class just after his sixth birthday in April 2010. He made steady progression through the belt ranks and his hard work and dedication paid off when he was awarded his black belt promotion in November 2013. This meant that much to his delight his dad would have to bow to him in class.
Joshua competed in his first tournament in 2011 and has competed every year since winning a total of 26 medals to date. In 2014 Joshua competed in three tournaments and became Scottish, British junior Grand Champion and European 10 and under Grand Champion.
This is an achievement all his family are very proud of. He currently trains three times a week as he works towards his goal of promotion to 2nd Dahn .
