Congratulations to Luke Barnett and Dean Ruzzaman, awarded junior and senior student of the year for 2019.
Student of the year is voted on by the senior Woodlane instructors based on the hard work, commitment and achievement displayed during the previous year. Luke passed his 1st Dan grading this year while Dean graded to 3rd Kyu after returning after a very long break from Karate. Well done to both!
