CALLUM Beattie, from Banbury, has achieved his black belt at the age of just eight.

The youngster, who trains for five hours a week, was commended by chief instructor Elliot Manning at his grading.

He said: “I would like to give a special congratulations to Callum Beattie for being the youngest student in 21st Century Martial Arts to achieve his black belt at just eight and a half years old.

“All the students who passed should be very proud of themselves and wear their new belts with pride.”
