Tae Kwon-Do thriving

Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do

2015 was an incredibly busy year at Bridgnorth Tae Kwon-Do (TKD) according to instructors Gary Plant and Anna Bradford. The Innage Lane-based martial arts school celebrates its 20th anniversary soon but the Korean martial art remains popular with adults as well as children.

In the past year, students have enjoyed tailored classes from Master Tony Sewell, three times undefeated World Champion, and national coach Jasper Chow, as well as attending a seminar hosted by TKD legend Jaroslaw Suska; club members bagged nine gold, eight silver and 17 bronze medals at national level, plus nine silver and bronze medals from the World Championships in Italy and London. The group also raised nearly £600 for the SHINE charity during a charity sparring event.

“TKD is based around kicks and punches and includes self defence, patterns, line work, sparring and theory,” explained Gary. “Classes are both technical and physical.”
