Tae Kwon Do instructor James Freer (6th Dan), has had great success at the recent World Championships, with three out of the five students he had enter from his Syston Club returning as champions from this massive event. The competition which ran over three days between the 12th and 14th of July, welcomed competitors from over 21 countries, totalling in over 2000 entries. It was hosted by the largest single bodied Tae Kwon Do organisation in Britain, the T.A.G.B, at Coventry’s Skydome arena. This competition was said to be ‘the biggest World championships ever to be put on in this country’.
Ten year old Edward Booth, gained a Bronze medal in boys red belt sparring, and Stuart Davison gained a Bronze Medal in the Men’s Executive Black Belt Sparring.
Sheryl Freer won a Gold Medal in Ladies Executive Sparring, and a Silver Medal in Ladies Black Belt Patterns. Sheryl was also in the play-off for a Bronze medal for her Musical Pattern.
Sheryl has now won Gold for her Sparring in the last 4 World Championships, so it has been an amazing achievement for her.
Mr Freer claims “It’s great to have five of my students to compete in such a huge International competition as this, but for three of them to come back as World Champions is amazing!”
