Last weekend saw the annual British Taekwondo National Championships held in Manchester national cycling centre. With over 700 competitors over the two days, it was the place to showcase British Taekwondo fighting talent.
According to our inside sources (Ushma and Heena) who were officiating (very proud of them both), it was a extremely successful tournament.
Spectators and Officials enjoyed watching London 2012 bronze medallist Lutalo Mohamed and Mahama Cho amongst others fight. There was also the opportunity to meet Golden Girl Jade Jones and one of the most successful British Taekwondo athletes Sarah Stephenson.
In addition to the seasoned fighters, it was great to see the up and coming fighters and the new talents from “Fighters Chance”. Best of all though, was that St Katherines TKD did very well, in addition to other Chungdokwan clubs.
Congratulations and well done to everyone who participated and officiated to make such a successful event.
I’m sure our officials will be there next year as well as some of the students looking to represent LLTKD!
