She travelled to Saltash on Sunday to take part in a tournament where she came second and was awarded a medal.

She said this was the third competition she has taken part in.

Alisha has been taking part in classes for over a year and has already worked her way up to the purple belt.

Her mother said she is already taking part in brown belt training which she hopes to get before the summer holidays.

Alisha said: “I do it for fun.”

Her mother, who likes to go along and support her, said: “I am so proud of her.

“She is winning so many medals lately.

“Last year she was awarded a silver and bronze medal.”

Her mother said she had a few more tournaments lined up for the rest of the year.
