Two Burnham-On-Sea Tae-Kwon-Do enthusiasts are celebrating after winning medals at the sport’s South West Championships over the weekend.

Members of Gemini Tae-Kwon-Do Club, who train at King Alfred School in Highbridge, competed in junior and adult classes at the South West Championships in Weston-Super-Mare on Sunday (February 5th).

The Burnham-On-Sea winners were Max Bradley (Team Sparring Silver) and Matthew Palfrey (Patterns Silver, Sparring Gold), pictured here.

Senior club instructor Jane Lambert told “There were over 400 students taking part in lots of different categories -we had entered four students in patterns, and sparring competitions. I was very pleased with how our students all performed.”

“They had all been so focused before the event and trained so hard – it is great that the hard work paid off.”

“We had one student competing for the first time, and we are really pleased that they came away with a bronze medal.”

“If you are looking for a great way to improve your fitness, make new friends and challenge yourself in 2017, Tae Kwon-Do is definitely the answer!”

Gemini Tae-Kwon-Do trains every Tuesday and Thursday at King Alfred School in Highbridge when men, women and children of all abilities are welcome.
