Sleaford Tae Kwon-Do instructor Daniel Pearce is celebrating 25 years practising the martial art.
He was congratulated by Tae Kwon-Do International president Grandmaster David Oliver, 9th degree, at a recent club event.
Daniel started training at the age of seven years and has travelled around the world to practise with masters and compete for his country at major tournaments.
After rising through the ranks, Daniel was promoted to 5th degree black belt in 2012, and in the next couple of years stands to become one of the youngest masters in the world.
Over the last 10 years, Daniel has dedicated a lot of time to teaching, and has built up a lot of knowledge and experience in coaching, so he can now inspire the next generation of Tae Kwon-Do students.
He is an instructor in Sleaford where the club is based at Carre’s Grammar School, Northgate, as well as in Melton Mowbray, Fernwood and Newark.
Daniel said: “Due to starting at a very young age I hope to have many more years ahead of me, practising and teaching the sport I love.
“Now I have the opportunity to show others what makes Tae Kwon-Do so special.”
