Bungay and Beccles Taekwondo clubs had a superbly successful GTUK British Championships on Saturday. 

The annual tournament was held in Coventry and 13 competitors from Bungay and 6 from Beccles came back with an amazing 21 medals after a long and tiring day.

Bungay students amassed 14 medals; Jayden Howgate won gold in the pee wee black belt patterns whilst Imogen Sutton achieved gold in the junior coloured belt girls sparring after a terrific set of fights in which she amassed lots of points for head kicks. Joe Hutson won superb silvers for junior male coloured belt sparring and patterns in his first Taekwondo competition whilst club instructor Clinton Gillett also came away with double silver in the male veteran black belt sparring and patterns.

Gordon Perkis won silver for patterns and bronze for sparring in the adult male coloured belts with Henry Rush achieving a silver for patterns and a bronze for sparring in the adult male higher belts category.  Kelsie Dyer won silver for sparring and bronze for patterns in the junior girls higher coloured belt section with Daniel Newton gaining a great silver for patterns in the junior boys coloured belt division.  Ewan Lutz won through some tough fights to gain a bronze for sparring in the junior boys higher coloured belts.  Other students competed bravely and all won at least one of their rounds.

Beccles achieved a superb 7 medals; Tyler Mingaye achieved a stunning double gold  for adult coloured belt sparring and patterns whilst  Lousie Nicoll  got a well-deserved gold for junior girls coloured belt Sparring.  Sophie Akerman fought hard in a massive division to win double silver for adult Ladies black belt patterns and sparring with her twin sister Jenna gaining a bronze for patterns in the same category.  Jamie Nicoll gained a great silver in  junior boys coloured belt patterns.

Unfortunately Barbara Mazza did not have any veteran competitors, but along with Jenna had to contend with 2 rounds of sparring against 4th degree World Champion Mrs Emma Collett!

Taekwondo is also known as Korean Kickboxing and is a superb sport for all ages and abilities, it develops fitness, stamina, suppleness, self confidence as well as self defence capabilities.  Both clubs are recruiting at the moment and welcome all newcomers, please check out www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk or www.beccles-taekwondo.co.uk
