Well done to our junior team! Each of our 7 fighters put in a great effort at today’s BUTL Junior Championships, winning 8 medals: 1 gold, 5 silver & 2 bronze!
A special mention goes to little Olly K, who won 2 medals at his first ever tournament! And to Owen, who fought like a lion against some tough (and taller!) opposition in his first competition as a black belt.
Well done also to Nikola, who missed out on the medals this time despite performing really well in both patterns & sparring.
Well done to all of you! It’s great to see everyone improving with each competition. Keep up the hard work and you’ll be unstoppable
This lot were absolutely brilliant at the North West Championships yesterday! Everyone got stuck in and gave it their best. Our 12 competitors came away with a haul of 20 medals: 12 gold, 4 silver & 4 bronze! 💪
A special shout-out to Tess, who did really well in her first ever competition 👏
Well done also to Joe, who put in a great effort in the patterns but unfortunately couldn’t stick around for the sparring.
So many performances to be proud of! Well done, team. Smashed it! 👊
If you’ve never achieved a black belt, you probably don’t know exactly what it takes to earn one. As well as the years of training, there are always many challenges: physical injuries, frustrations, self-doubt and lack of confidence, to name just a few.
Today, six of our amazing club members overcame those challenges and demonstrated that they truly have what it takes to be taekwondo black belts
We’re incredibly pleased and proud to confirm the following belt promotions:
Harry Fowler – 1st Degree Black Belt Owen Gargan – 1st Degree Black Belt Amelia Fowler – 2nd Degree Black Belt Connor Murphy – 2nd Degree Black Belt Callum Edwards – 3rd Degree Black Belt Chris Davies – 5th Degree Black Belt.
Massive CONGRATULATIONS to you all! You’ve done yourselves and your club proud
Well done to our team for another solid performance at the T-UK English Championships!
There were some tough fights and some tough decisions, but our fighters got stuck in and did us proud, as always. The team won 14 medals in total: 4 gold, 5 silver & 5 bronze
A special shout-out to Dominik and Morgan, who were competing for the first time. They both showed a lot of courage in stepping onto the mats, and they both sparred well against more experienced opponents. Well done, lads
Huge thanks to Connor, Nicole, Rob & Deb for coaching, and to the rest of the gang for the amazing support
Finally, thanks to Mr Miley and the organisers at Trident TKD for hosting
Our team made a great start on the year’s tournaments at the GTI English Championships yesterday!
There was a lot of tough opposition, but our team of 11 fighters did us proud, winning 15 medals overall: 6 gold, 5 silver & 4 bronze
A special mention to Joe, who performed really well in patterns and sparring, only losing out in the sparring by a single point; and to Liam, who fought well to win silver in sparring at his first competition
Congratulations also to Callum, who was awarded GTI Competitor of the Year 2020-2022 in Boys Patterns
We’d also like to say how much we appreciate our coaches Connor, Nicole, Callum, Rob & Deb, for their amazing support of the team before, during and after the competition. And, of course, all the parents and supporters who cheered everyone on!
