Congratulations to Brad Bergamini on passing his 3rd Dan Black Belt in style. Team Round House captain Brad is only 16 years old and just preparing for his exams at Moorside High School. Brad is a former member of the GBR patterns team and previously competed at the European Championships before deciding to focus his attention on the sport sparring side of Taekwondo. Since switching over to competitive sparring he’s having further success with TKO victories in his last 2 fights. In his grading on the 13th April 2014 in Doncaster, Brad’s performance was the only one to be highlighted in the final presentation out of the 60 candidates that were graded. The examiners said ‘that every now and then someone who is exceptional comes along to take a grading, and they were very impressed by the ability of this lad’. He was asked to stand & the room erupted in applause for his fantastic performance. The stats suggest only 1 in 10,000 make it to Black Belt. This young person has gone further & already achieved his Black Belt 3rd Dan. Keep up the good work & we wish him the same success in his school exams.
