Tae Kwon-Do success for Long Sutton and Wisbech students
Students from The Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do have excelled in an online competition.
The students were invited to take part in the TAGB (Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain) Central England North Area Online Patterns Competition which is also a qualifier for entries going forward into the British Championships.
Patterns are a sequence of Tae Kwon-Do techniques performed against four or more imaginary opponents.
They demonstrate the student’s technical ability as well as power and balance.
Some patterns can have up to 60 or 70 movements and need to be precisely performed with a high level of accuracy.
Students submitted a video of their patterns to be judged online by five senior TAGB judges.
From the Long Sutton club, Dexter Campbell was first in the yellow belt boys’ section and Diego Bernasconi was first in the men’s yellow belts.
In Wisbech, Charlotte Beck was second in the girls red belt section.
All three have qualified for the British Championships.
The Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do look forward to seeing all student old and new once lockdown restrictions allow.
