MANDY Croft has achieved her first dan after being put through her bases.
She becomes Blackburn Martial Arts and Kick Boxing Club’s first female first dan in kickboxing – and is one of only seven at the club to achieve the feat in. As part of her grading she did 10 rounds ‘Full Contact’ round with ex-British Champion Owen McGill and three rounds ground fighting.
