Cambridge and Impington Tang Soo Do Clubs are delighted to announce the success of its students at the National Championships on 3 May 2014 in Nottingham. In its 30th year the Championship attracted around 400 competitors within the World Tang Soo Do Association from all corners of the country. Students from Impington and Cambridge TSD collectively brought home fifteen trophies from the championships, including five 1st places, eight 2nd places and two 3rd places.
“It was a great day for the clubs on Saturday, the Championship is growing year on year, with nearly 20% more competitors than the 2013 Championships. We want to say well done to all those who competed. We were both pleased to have students competing and representing Cambridge & Impington Clubs. In July students will be travelling to the United States to compete at The World Championships, the success at the National Championships will motivate and inspire the students to keep working hard and give them the confidence to perform to their best again.” Master and Mrs Allen, Instructors.
The close knit clubs encouraged and supported each other, training together in preparation for the Championships and as part of the brotherhood of Tang Soo Do now celebrate in their collective success.
Tang Soo Do is a Korean form of karate that has roots extending back many hundreds of years. Training involves a wide variety of exercises including stretching, punching, kicking techniques, hand techniques, hyungs or forms (set patterns of moves), sparring and meditation. As well as developing self defence techniques, Tang Soo Do training aims to enhance your total self, including your fitness, self-discipline, confidence, and much more. It is also a great way to meet new people
