MARTIAL ARTS: A team of 11 students from Wisbech & King’s Lynn Tang Soo Do Martial Arts Club won 10 trophies at the World Tang Soo Do Association National Championship in Nottingham. 

The local students were successful across four categories – weapons, forms, sparring and team forms.

Sophia Stanton came second in forms and first in sparring, Katie Day was first in sparring and Tracey-Kym Gooch came first in both forms and sparring. 

Tia Cowdrey was first in forms, while Edith Pike came second in forms and sparring.

Zoe Freeman was first in tiny tigers and Arthur Pike third in forms. 

Other students in action were Nakita Davies, Sophia Mancini-Bright, Archie Brockwell and Rio Pachent-Bright

Instructor Donna Harvey said: “I’m so proud of all of my students. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to prepare for a competition like this one. 

“Their hard work really has paid off and they are now preparing for the Regional Championship in Wales in November.”

Stanton and Gooch have qualified to represent Great Britain at the World Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina in the USA next month. 

The club train on Monday evenings at Lynnsport and Thursday evenings at Walton Highway Village Club.
