A WOODROW family certainly have their home security well and truly covered.

Mike Shaw and his two sons, Peter and Daniel, have all received new Blackbelt grades – known as Dan’s – in Kickboxing this summer.

Forty-six-year-old Mike runs Redditch Martial Arts, based in Millsborough House, and has been training in martial arts for the last 40 years – the last 20 of which have been spent in Millsborough House.

Youngest son Daniel has reached first Dan, 18-year-old Peter his fourth and Mike himself has progressed to fifth.

“I am very proud,” Mike added.

“I teach everyday apart from Saturday and also have fourth Dan in Karate and third Dan in Sport Karate.”

The martial arts extraordinaire also relies on his eldest son, who has been training since he was three, to teach classes.

Peter has followed in his father’s footsteps and also holds second Dan in Sport Karate and first Dan in Karate.
