Students from Portishead TAGB Tae-Kwon-Do Club picked up gold medals at the Southern Championships held in Torquay.

Portishead TAGB Tae-Kwon-Do Club, who train at Parish Wharf Leisure Centre and Portishead Primary School, competed in junior and adult classes at the Southern Championships held in Torbay.

Senior club instructor Jane Lambert said: “There were more than 350 students taking part in lots of different categories. We entered five students in patterns and sparring and I am extremely pleased with how all our students performed. They have all been incredibly focused before the event and trained so hard - it is great that their hard work has paid off.

“We had one student competing for the first time and we are really please that Rose Cherian came away with a gold medal.

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

The club trains every Monday and Thursday and men, women and children of all abilities are very welcome.
