Over the Easter holidays, Jack Webster of 9C, was crowned English Open Taekwondo Champion at the Under 14 age group. The award, which was in the category of sparring and was against very stiff opposition. If this wasn’t enough, he followed this up by winning the Midlands Open Championships for 13 – 17 year olds in the categories of both patterns and sparring. Obviously, these are significant achievements for a 13 year old who had to compete and beat older competition.
For the uninitiated, sparring involves fighting against opponents, whilst patterns involves completion of a set of pre-determined moves.
