Sparring for charity

Excalibur Martial Arts students have raised over £1,000 for Hope House Children’s Hospice by taking part in the annual GTI Charity 100 Rounds of Sparring event. Students have also seen success at the UKTA Welsh Open in Cardiff and at the GTI North West Open in Liverpool, where Lauren Hayward and Toni Bennett brought home silver and bronze medals in sparring. Three of the students, Tammy Lewis, Dean Lewis and Luke Richardson, have been chosen to represent the GTI England Squad at the Open World Taekwondo Championships in the Netherlands later this year.
