Outstanding results for the Annabel Murcott Schools of Tae Kwon Do saw students showing off their skills at the Tae Kwon Do Association of Great Britain’s Academy in Bristol.

Instructor Annabel Murcott, 6th Dan Master, said: “I am very pleased with the results.

Unfortunately not all made it this time, once again showing the high level that is expected.

“They all trained very hard leading up to the exam.

“The juniors have school work to deal with as well as training up to three times a week and the adults have homes to run, work, as well as train themselves.

“We currently have over 100 black belts in our clubs.

“Many give up extra time to pass on their knowledge teaching, as well as travelling the country at weekends to officiate at competitions.”

New students of all ages and abilities are being recruited so if you are up for a challenge call Annabel or Dale on 01780 410609.
