The latest news from the London Tang Soo Do club

London Tang Soo Do members combined to win 65 medals, including 29 golds at the European Championships in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

More than 500 competitors from all over the continent competed in weapons, hyungs (patterned forms) and fighting.

Katherine Bernarte, Khyle Capanzana and Rowan Jennings were the stand out performers after winning the Grand Champions Cup in each of their divisions.

“All of our students worked hard in preparation for this competition, training four to five times per week; their hard work, commitment and dedication has been rewarded,” said Master Rommel Bernarte, the club’s chief instructor.

“All of the accolades received are fully deserved and I am so proud of all of them and honoured to be their Instructor.”

A selection of the London TSD students will continue their preparations ahead of representing Great Britain at the 2018 World Championships in the United States.
