Jacob Bolton in 7U has explained his love of Taekwondo to his form. He only took up the martial art a year ago, but has already progressed through his white, yellow and orange belts. He is now a blue belt, having passed rigorous assessments at each level.

It was his dad’s idea for Jacob to take up Taekwondo as he was often bored at the weekend. He attends sessions at Irlam Leisure Centre every Friday.

Jacob enjoys meeting up with all the new friends that he has made through the sport, and he looks forward to the challenge of earning each new belt as the skills become more difficult.

He is currently working towards his green belt. His aim is to become a black belt, and to eventually become a master and be able to coach other people.

Well done Jacob!
