A group of Black Belts from Beccles Taekwon-do club travelled to the GTUK British Taekwondo Championships held at Ryton-on-Dunsmore near Coventry, and this was the 2nd weekend running Beccles had students heading across the country to a major Taekwon-do event.

All students worked tirelessly helping the GTUK organisation with administrating and refereeing of the competitors squares, with a special mention for Bella Gibson who did a fantastic job of chaperoning competitors to and from the squares throughout the day.

The Championships had competitors from all over the country, including a Taekwondo team from the Army!

Two of the students, Barbara Mazza and Jason Drake, then entered their respective categories later in the day, and were both very successful at their events.
