SHE'S just 11 years old, but black-belt Ellie Hall is leading the way when it comes to karate - she teaches children and adults.

Ellie, from Three Holes, has taken part in karate since she was five years old and secured her Junior 1st Dan black belt in September.

Her mum Karen said: "Ellie started karate to increase self-confidence and to keep fit.

"But she has not looked back since she started, and so she didn't lose interest after getting her black belt she took a coaching course."
