Tae Kwon Do students excel

Siblings Connor, Erin and Reilly McGinley, together with fellow student Luke Richardson, were graded at Master Tony ‘The Iceman’ Sewell’s Academy in Derby, scrutinised by a panel of three senior GTI Black Belt examiners. Luke (16) was successfully promoted to 3rd Dan Junior Black Belt whilst Connor (15) and Erin (12) were promoted to 2nd Dan Junior Black Belt and Reilly (10) was promoted to 1st Dan Junior Black Belt.

Just a couple of weeks later, Excalibur took a 14-strong team of officials and competitors to the GTI British Open Tournament in Cheltenham and returned with a huge sense of achievement – and a substantial haul of medals: one gold, three silvers and four bronzes between them.
