George Lake of the Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon Do picked up a bronze medal in the TAGB North Midlands Championships.
The event held at the Derby Arena, Derby, attracted more than 700 Tae Kwon Do students, who competed in Pattern, Sparring and Team Sparring events.
There was also a competition for the Black Belts, Destruction.
The Mark Farnham Schools provided 24 competitors for the competition and returned with an impressive 17 awards.
Mark said: “This was a great achievement considering the few students who took part. Well done to all those who supported us and we now look forward to our next competition, the British Championships.”
George Lake, of the Long Sutton school, turned in the performance of the day, finishing third in the Boys’ Blue Belt Sparring event.
The Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon Do first began in November 1987. There are now 14 schools across the east of England, including Spalding and Long Sutton, which have around 600 students training with them each week.
