Nemesis Kickboxing Academy in Inverurie has completed its autumn belt gradings.
One hundred students took part in the gradings over the two days from children aged four to adults.
Head coach Eric Birkett said: "It was a great relief to finally be able to have our first adult belt gradings since restrictions were eased.
"The entire club has had to be extremely patient during the last year and a half, and none more so than our adult students who were the last to be able to train indoors with contact.
"The gradings for the younger students were also fantastic due to the amount of beginner white belts we have had over the past few months.
"We had to give separate gradings to the beginners due to their overwhelming numbers.
"The four to six year Little Ninjas were the first to grade followed by our seven to 12 years juniors.
"These youngsters showed huge promise, and we’re sure there’s a few future black belts among them.
"The hard work begins again as we prepare for our winter grading as well as our first competition of the year in November."
