PKA Kickboxing, based in Heanor, is celebrating after two of its younger members successfully received their black belts. Reece Allen (13, from Heanor) and Abbie Weston (15, from Swanwick), successfully completed a gruelling five-hour exam at the Kickboxing Association’s headquarters at Temple Gym in Birmingham. Instructor Neil Fletcher said: “I am immensely proud of both Reece and Abbie. They have both come such a long way and become great role models.”
