On Sunday 18th Feb 2012 the Richards TKD crew arrived at the Penarth Leisure Centre with great anticipation of another exciting day of competition ahead of us.
After the weigh in and registration the competition got underway with the black belt patterns divisions. Its always a pleasure to see all the students competing after all their hard work. Standards were extremely high once again and they had to produce their best performances to win a medal.

On to the sparring and again some really hard fought categories and everyone cheering their club mates or team mates on. The atmosphere was electric as the competitors battled against each other, especially those who are qualifying for the World Championships in Canada Later this year. Once again some brilliant results for Region 4.

We are also very proud of Jake Cook who just missed out on a medal but gave some really good performances.

We would like to thank all the officials , umpires and instructors for another amazing day and to Master Nicholls, Master  Lawes and Master Gassor for their support all year round.
