Arthur McAuley from Year 4 claimed gold in the recent Master Wolf British Taekwondo Championships held at the Winter Gardens Margate. Arthur’s sparring, judged over 4 rounds, impressed the judges who awarded him the gold in the under 8 category.
For the uninitiated, taekwondo is a Korean martial art characterised by the speed and agility of fast jumping and spinning kicks. The discipline is underpinned by the five core tenets of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit and we agree with the judges that Arthur is a true ambassador for the discipline, exhibiting these wonderful qualities both in and outside the dojang. Well done Arthur.
