More Medals for Toddington

A junior team from Toddington Tae Kwon Do Club took part in the IMA Open British Championships held in Birmingham on Sunday 14th October 2007. The eleven members that took part in the sparring competition brought back 13 medals including 5 Gold, 4 Silver and 4 Bronze and the Gold medalists are now able to call themselves IMA British Champion 2007 for their category. A number of the group competed in more than 1 category across point stop and continuous sparring and in some cases fought in more than one weight group. The medal winners were Carl Rolfe (Gold - point stop middleweight, Gold - continuous middleweight), Thomas Rolfe (Gold - point stop lightweight, Bronze - continuous lightweight), Alex Storrer (Gold – continuous heavyweight, Bronze – point stop heavyweight), James Walker (Silver – point stop lightweight, Bronze - point stop middleweight), Harry Prudden (Gold – point stop middleweight), Oscar Towe (Silver – point stop middleweight), Oliver Storrer (Silver – continuous middleweight), Josh Robinson (Bronze – point stop lightweight) and Abigail York (Silver – point stop middleweight). Also competing were Jack Wilson and Ben Sherborn who, whilst not being in the medals, should be congratulated on a strong performance in what was their first ever competition.

The club trains regularly at Winchcombe Sports Hall and is now also organising ‘The Toddington Tigers’ – a demonstration team loosely based upon the world renowned Korean Tigers. It is still seeking to recruit new members and would be particularly interested in forming an adult (17 years upwards) group to train alongside the juniors.

Toddington Tae Kwon Do is run by Chief Instructor James Rolfe, 3rd Dan Black Belt, who has over 20 years experience in the sport and has a successful record as a national and international competitor including a period as a member of the British National Team.

Tae Kwon Do is a Korean Martial Art renowned for its fast, high spinning kicks. Its practice is useful for improving flexibility, as a form of keep fit as well as for self defence. The club welcomes students of all ages and abilities.
