South East Championships 2016
We took 11 Students to The TAGB South East Championships
Our original team of 14 students were whittled down to 11 because of injuries, illness and work commitments but we still made our mark with 5 Gold, 5 Silver and 3 Bronze medals.
Tyha successfully defended her South East title and overwhelmed her opponent in the final with a barrage of head kicks.
She also picked up bronze in the patterns event
Cheryl in her very first competition won a close fought final coming from behind to win 3-2
Rachel in her first competition as a member of the club won Silver in sparring.
Also competing for the first time Michelle bravely fought her way to Silver.
Daniel performed Toi Gye in mens red belt patterns and won Silver in a play off against very good competition.
Edward Hall stepped up to the mens division and was placed 3rd in Red belt lightweight.
Sulli was in a large group of Blue belt boys and just lost out for Gold to win Silver in a hard fought final.
Tyha, Rachel, Emma all won Gold in their various team sparring groups
Edward Hall also won silver in team sparring and Sulli bronze.
Well done to all the students who didn’t medal but did the club proud and the experience will stand in good stead for future events.
