Callander and Falkirk Taekwondo club had a great start to 2019 at the recent British Taekwondo championships held by the Traditional Taekwondo Association led by Grandmaster TK Loh.

We had some new young competitors competing for the first time and they all enjoyed the experience. We won Silver medal in the team poomsae event where Areti Lymperopoulou won medals with her daughter Artemis McIntyre and Ruby Morrison. Areti also won Silver in the adult female team sparring event along with team mates Dilyana Radulova and Holly Rivett.

Sparring brothers Rhys and Jacob Clark won Gold medals in their respective weight category and Ross Duff also won Gold in the children’s sparring event. In the female individual sparring Toni Kent won Gold and Emily Aitkenhead won Silver.

Overall we received 4 Golds and 7 Silvers, winning best team spirit for our efforts.

Our club trains 4 days a week in Falkirk and Callander, all new students are welcome to come along and give Taekwondo a try. Contact Duncan on 07713 193841 or email
