2011 UK-ITF British Championships in Reading  

In the early hours of Saturday 8th October, 53 members of Gassor’s Taekwon-do Team set off for the two day event of the UK-ITF 2011 British Championships in Reading.  Gassor’s Taekwon-do departed from the MAFC in Newport, South Wales with a large coach and convoy of cars as they were hugely supported by family and friends who travelled up to Reading.  

The students were really looking forward to competing in the Tournament as this is the biggest UK-ITF event.  The Tournament attracted International fighters from all over the UK and with fighters coming from Spain, Italy and other Countries.  

The Tournament was a great success and was well organised and attended.  All of our students had a great time and Gassor’s Tournament Team were very pleased to come away with 12 new 2011 British Champions and 51 medals overall.  Please find medal winners listed below:

The students had a great weekend staying at the Premier Inn and on the Staurday evening Mrs. Gassor-Jones had booked a party of 70 people at TGI Friday’s for a celebratory meal as a ‘treat’ for the Team.   We would like to thank the parents, families and friends who came along to the UK-ITF British Championships and to all fighters who gave a great performance.  We appreciate your time, effort and loyalty.  

We would also like to thank Master Nicholls and all of the UK-ITF Instructors and students for a great day and the kind invite to the Tournament.

56 members of Gassor’s Tournament Team are now looking forward to attending the Mediterranean Open Tournament in Italy in February, 2012.
