Unprecedented 4 times in a row UK champions do it Again!
Another great result for Falkirk and Callander Taekwondo club at the recent UK
championships with the club winning a UK Championship event for the unprecedented
4th time in a row beating teams from all across the UK.
What a fantastic few years it has been for the club winning the Individual UK championship
in November 08 then the Team UK championship in April 09 and again the Individual
UK championships in November 09 and now again the Team championships in 2010.
This is an unbelievable achievement for our Taekwondo club who are still the top
club in the Traditional Taekwondo Association led by 8th Dan Granmaster TKLoh.
The club won 14 Golds 5 Silvers and 12 Bronzes in sparring and the overall UK
Special mention for this competition goes to Liam Muir who won 3 Golds with some tough fights in
three different weight categories he showed fantastic Taekwondo spirit on the day. Liam goes
from strength to strength in each competition and was by far the best child competitor on the day.
Brother and Sister Ross and Eilihd Walker won their fights in quick time and picked up another 2 Golds,
Ross was the best Junior competitor on the day and finished the final fight in a matter of seconds.
The best coloured belt adult of the day was clearly Ricky Buchanan winning the final in 10 seconds
with 2 knockout kicks, he will be one to watch when he gets into the black belt category.
I could go on and mention all students who competed as every one of them did their club
and parents proud by having the courage to compete and win the shield for our club.
