Endeavour Taekwondo school does well at national championships in Birmingham

A Taekwondo school continues to punch above its weight after a successful campaign at the national championships.

Building on from its success at the world titles last year, Endeavour Taekwondo headed to the International Taekwondo UK Open Championships in Birmingham, full of confidence.

Instructor Sarah Harney and her students competed against squads from all over the Uk from places including Belfast, Glasgow, and London.

The tournament saw students battle in patterns, sparring, and destruction events.

The Southwell and South Muskham clubs did well against the rest of the country, coming back with a haul of medals.

Seven competitors from both clubs took part and between them they managed to come back with 11 medals.

Harney said that the majority of these were gold and silver achievements.

Lucy Martin who was the only female who entered the destruction event won gold against her male counterparts.

The 18-year-old went on to win a gold in sparring and medalled in patterns as well.

"Our competitors Lucy, Thomas, Jack, Sammy, William, Erin, and Rose all stepped up to represent the sport and the club at a well-attended and very competitive event and proved their skills yet again," said Harney.

“I’m immensely proud of all that they have achieved.

"Lucy is a rising star and her success in destruction was brilliant. "Hopefully we’ll see all of the team bringing glory back to Nottinghamshire over the coming years and promoting the best of what Taekwondo can offer”.

Harney added that Endeavour Taekwondo is a local club based in the Newark/Mansfield areas of Nottinghamshire and is always looking for the next superstar to join their ever growing and successful team.
