British Championships 2016

British Championships on 20th November

Venue: Derby Arena,
We took 16 Students to The TAGB British Championships in Derby

This is always a massive event with over 1,400 students of all ages competing including teams from other associations overseas.

Tyha won Gold in sparring, Silver in Patterns, Silver in power event and Gold in team sparring
Robert won Silver in sparring
Suzanne won Bronze in sparring
Cheryl won Gold in sparring
Emma and Maddi won Bronze in team sparring
Sophie won Bronze in Girls black belt sparring

The results show that Taekwon-do really is for everyone whatever age with 7 of our students entering executive divisions and many juniors competing.
Tyha has now been crowned British Sparring Champion 3 years running at different weight divisions and Cheryl was also crowned British Champion in just her 2nd ever competition.
Sophie followed up her black belt promotion by competing in her first ever competition and won a deserved Bronze fighting girls taller and older.
Josh and Adam did us proud with brave fighting displays against more experienced students and will have gained a lot from the experience for future events.
Whether you medal or not competitions are a chance to pit yourself against the best the TAGB has to offer and an unforgettable experience.
