Tae Kwon Do instructor Chloe Lock and her students had another successful year at the TAGB South West Championships that were recently held in Paignton.
The competitive side of the art is purely optional and this time Lock and eight students from her classes at Honiton and Broadclyst attended, some for the first time.
Honiton student, 12-year-old Cain Spiller had a very successful first tournament winning bronze in both boys green belt patterns and sparring, adding to his recent grading award he was presented by Master Michael Dew 8th Dan in August for gaining an A-star pass.
Helen Kirby won bronze in Ladies Black Belt patterns, Tracy Kirby won gold in ladies Black Belt tag team sparring with team mate Chloe Lock and Broadclyst student, Rebecca Hart, won gold in junior tag team sparring.
Lock also won gold in individual ladies middleweight black belt sparring, retaining her title.
