HALL Family Taekwon-do collected two silver and three bronze medals at the Welsh Open Championships in Cardiff which saw entries from many international competitors.

Instructors and coach Luke Hall fought in a particularly tough category against many of the association's top fighters and secured a silver medal.

Junior Black Tag, Beth Hill, fought in her first international tournament in a difficult category and took a bronze medal for her efforts.

Senior coloured belt Tomas Strapko also fought in his first international tournament earning a bronze medal while Chris Royles and Nick Slane added to the awards on the day, earning a bronze medal and silver medal respectively.

Alex Winney, Lyndon Winney, Marcus Ashfield, Jason Winney, assistant instructor and coach Dan Sneddon and instructor and coach Sarah Hall also entered this challenging tournament and despite fighting through many difficult rounds missed out on medals.

All the students received a diploma for their skill on the day.

"We would like to give a special mention to a young student, entering his first competition ever, who showed amazing spirit and determination," said Luke and Sarah Hall.

"Lyndon Winney, age seven, has never before entered a competition and only started training this year.

"He bravely entered such a large tournament and despite falling short of a medal, showed the most genuine sportsmanship and enthusiasm that we have ever seen."

The pair added: "We are extremely proud of all the students who took part and also those who came and supported on the day."
