Success at INTA Open

Four member of Grandmaster Howard’s Taekwon-Do School performed well at the recent INTA Open International in the National Basketball Arena, Tallaght, Dublin 24. The four young martial artists are part of Ireland’s European Championships Squad and the competition in Tallaght was part of their development programme.

The red belts competed in both patterns and sparring and their progress over the past few weeks was clear to see in their high performances. The four young Taekwon-Do competitors from Castleknock, Cabra and the Navan Road, will continue in their training programme as they look forward to the upcoming European Taekwon-Do Championships in Greece.

Thanks to Ms Audrey Conon for coaching the students and Mr Jeroen Wezelman of the INTA for the invitation to the event.
