The Cambodian Hapkido Federation handed out belt promotions to a group of students after an examination held at Bridgeton School, located near Boeung Trabek market in Chamkarmon district, on Sunday.

During a ceremony at the school, 1st Dan black belts were awarded to six students, 2nd Dans black belts to two students and brown belts to 13 students of the South Korean martial art.
