Barrie Roberts receives 1st Tengchi Black Sash Grade from Sifu

Barrie began martial arts practice at a young age in the Midlands. This was Tang Soo Do. He trained for a number of years and achieved a Junior Black Belt aged just twelve. He had some success in competition also whilst living there.
He then moved down to South Wales and after some time out of training, he joined the FYS Kung Fu classes at Cwmbran and Pontypool under Sifu and says he has never looked back. He thought that the TSD gave him a good base, but then realised after a short time, just how much more there was to learn.
He loves the Kung Fu and after only five years of regular training Graded to 1st Tengchi/Black Sash in 2013.
He has competed in a few competitions and brought home a few medals from National Tournaments.
He lives in Cwmbran with his wife and two children. He currently works in I.T.
