Students at the Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do have secured a place at the British Championships
Long Sutton students at the Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do have secured a place at the British Championships.
Dexter Campbell and Diego Bernasconi were successful at the qualifiers that were held as an online patterns competition for the Central England North Area.
Patterns are a sequence of Tae Kwon-Do techniques performed against four or more imaginary opponents.
They demonstrate the students' technical ability as well as power and balance. Some patterns can have up to 60 or 70 movements and need to be precisely performed with a high level of accuracy.
Students submitted a video of their patterns to be judged online by five senior judges of the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain.
Campbell and Bernasconi were successful in the boys' yellow belt and men's yellow belt categories respectively.
They each topped their respective sections which helped land a spot at the British Championships.
The Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do are temporarily closed during the national lockdown but will re-open as soon as Government approval is given.
