A total of 27 fighting areas ran throughout the day with more than 1,000 competitors and 200 officials.

Grimes and Mason were among 29 students from the Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do in this tournament, winning 19 medals from pattern, sparring, destruction, power test and team sparring events.

Farnham said: "To win any award at this event is a very serious achievement, so very well done to the students who achieved placings.

"We are now working towards the World Championships in Birmingham in July."
