INSTRUCTOR Luke Hall added another two world titles to his collections at the

World United Martial Arts World Championships.

Five Herefordshire fighters took part in the tournament which was held over three days with over 1,500 competitors from countries all over the world.

Chief instructor at Hall Family TKD Luke Hall won both of his categories on the day, taking his total world titles up to five.

Fellow chief instructor Sarah Hall had a particularly tough category, taking a silver medal along with a broken rib, making this her second world title.

Black belt and assistant instructor Dan Sneddon, fought out of his comfort zone in his second world tournament, gaining a bronze medal.

This was the first world class tournament for black belt and assistant instructor Jordan Haggett, who showed true courage all the way to the final rounds, finally taking a silver medal.

Nathaniel Barnsley-Staight stepped into his first elite tournament as a yellow belt, and had to step up a weight category gaining valuable experience, and showing true spirit and determination, but unfortunately missed out on a title.

Mr and Mrs Hall are immensely proud of the teams effort and achievements at this event. "What people don't realise is the behind the scenes training that takes place, mentally and physically, in the run up to these events," said a club spokesman.

"Martial arts is not just a sport but a life long journey, instilling discipline and good strong morals, which anyone can achieve with the right determination, commitment, and dedication!

"If you are looking at making a change in your life, it's never too late to achieve your goals, whether that is to improve your fitness or lose weight, learn to defend yourself, meet new people and make friends, or improve concentration and confidence."

Hall family TKD train in Hereford and Worcester, offering one months free training to all new starters from the age of four.
