ATI Martial Arts’ newest club is off to a strong start after foundation members Bradley McKenzie and Patrick Jones completed perfect taekwondo gradings earlier this month.
Opened in March, the Attadale club is headed by instructor Cameron Sutton, a second Dan black belt with more than 20 years of taekwondo experience and six Australian Open titles to his name.
Bradley had been training in Broome but joined the Attadale club after relocating to Perth. Of the 48 people in his grading group, he was the only one to attain a perfect grading, graduating from a yellow belt three to a blue belt.
Jones recently returned to taekwondo after a 15-year break and attained his red belt second stripe with a perfect grading – one of only two in his group to complete the feat.
ATI Martial Arts Attadale trains out of the Troy Park Recreation Centre on Burke Drive.
