A FATHER and son team from Shirley have achieved the ultimate goal in Martial Arts and gained their black belts together.

A FATHER and son team from Shirley have achieved the ultimate goal in Martial Arts and gained their black belts together.

Kickboxers Mark Abrahams, 37, and son Josh, 12, both passed with flying colours in their recent grading exam.

Josh took up the sport six years ago to build his confidence and for self defence, but his dad also joined and the pair soon got hooked. Four-times World Kickboxing Champion Kash ‘the flash’ Gill trains the duo up at the LAYCA Centre in Stretton Road, Shirley.

He said: “I am proud of Mark and Josh who have worked extremely hard to gain their grade, which was fully deserved with the effort put in over the years.”

Kash teaches in Shirley every Tuesday and is starting a new beginners class at 6-7pm. Call him on 07973 421 690 for more information.
