The busy team of martial artists at Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do have started the year as they mean to go on with promotions, medals and personal bests.
A group of colour belts passed their winter gradings with flying colours and a 100% pass rate, which the club has maintained throughout the last 12 months.
Adult black belt student Aubrey Round has gained his Umpire Certification in preparation for his upcoming 3rd Degree Black Belt grading which will take place in the spring. Mr Round also won silver for men’s veterans heavyweight black belt sparring at the GTI English Open at the end of January.
David Rowley also won a silver, for men’s veterans middleweight sparring, losing a very respectable final to a fifth degree black belt, after a tie.
At the same competition secondary school student Jack Light scored a personal best of 17 for his pattern ‘Toi-Gye’, and continued to show improvement.
Instructor Anna Bradford said: “Everybody’s attitude is spot on, and these students strive to improve all the time.”
New students are welcome at Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do all year round and are invited to take up a free four-lesson trial with no obligation. New students can expect to gain fitness, stamina, flexibility and confidence.
