ONE black belt per household is hard enough to receive so when the Lindsey family scooped two last month there was certainly reason for celebration.
Jenny Lindsey and her 13-year-old son Liam were both presented with the well-respected award - and now her other younger children Jenna, David and Louis, and husband Ian are hoping to reach the same level.
All six attend the Shirley Kickboxing Club run by four-times World Kickboxing Champion Kash the Flash Gill.
Jubilant Jenny was delighted with her achievement and is now even considering coaching herself.
“It’s great to go as a family hobby and learn self defence at the same time,” she said.
“It’s also given the kids a good discipline and a real confidence booster.”
The talented duo got their accolade when the established International Freestyle Association held its Grading at the Kash The Flash Gym in Edgbaston in front of a panel of expert judges.
Kash is set start up a new programme for beginners. To join call him on 07973 421 690.
