Digby-based Acorn Judo Club have been celebrating after a number of their members were successful in their gradings.
All of those who graded, both junior and senior members, were praised for their theory content and determination in putting it into practice. For some, it was their first time at a grading but they did not let nerves get the better of them.
Senior coach Julie Norman is pictured with the members who graded.
