THE future looks bright for the Ali School of MMA if the latest batch of youngsters to achieve their black belts is anything to go by.

The Accrington-based club recently held a grading where young members aged between eight and 14-years-old were presented with their latest honours.

Mohsin Ahktar, eight, and his nine-year-old brother Ahsan, Junaid Ali, eight, Hassan Khan 9, Sufyaan, Raheem, both aged 11, Usman, 13, and 14-year-old Tahir all received their black belts.

But there was a special moment for both Mohsin and Ahsan who were presented with their award from a great islamic scholar Al Shaikhal Sayed Al Gaylani at the club’s Nelson school.
