Sunday 24th June saw three of our competitors travel up to St. Albans for the first ever TKD Pure event, this is a black belt only event designed to involve the best UK Taekwon-Do competitors from all different groups. We Had Richard Winton competing in the veterans category for the first time in 6 years, Mike Bartlett competing with very little training and Ryan Simpson.

The Veterans were first with Mike showing well in an excellent pattern division, narrowly missing out on a medal. Then came the sparring with Richard gaining a bronze, and the same for Mike.

Then it was Ryan's turn, he won gold in patterns and then to his great delight avenging the previous defeat to the same opponent he won the sparring too.

Well done to all who competed and supported.

There are lot's of events this summer, so if you'd like to take part see your Instructor.
