Kevin Diamond from Bellaghy is currently celebrating achieving his Black belt in Karate. The young star aged 12 is sponsored by Maghera based Specialist Joinery Group and is amongst the youngest ever to achieve the ‘black belt’ award.
A member of Zanshin Shotokan Karate Club for three and a half years, Kevin is under the pupillage of Terry Geddis 4th Dan KUGB. During his time with the Club, Kevin has received great recognition for his talent and dedication, being a member of the Junior Squad for over one and half years and travelling to many competitions both locally and nationally.
Kevin’s natural ability and fierce determination to be the best in his field, has resulted in Kevin obtaining a Black Belt at such a young age. Kevin is also grateful to his Family, Instructor Terry Geddis 4th Dan KUGB, Specialist Joinery Group and all who support him.
Ciaran O’Hagan – Operations Director said. “The whole team at Specialist Joinery Group were delighted when we heard that Kevin had achieved his Black belt. He is a very talented and dedicated young man and we are very proud to sponsor him and wish him every success in the future.”
