Students from Buxton Taekwondo Club competed in the recent North Midland Area Championships.

The event, which is held every year in Derby, is open to students from all over the country to compete in Sparring, Patterns and Destruction.

Daniel Owen won bronze in Patterns and Sparring, with Ethan Owen also scooping a bronze in Patterns.

Isaac Quinn and Anthony Briddon competed in the sparring but they just missed out on podium finishes.

Instructor Jane Holmes meanwhile, was awarded the trophy for the best referee for 2013.

She said: “I can’t believe it. It was an honour to be nominated but to win the award was just amazing.

“All the officials work hard and that’s what makes the competition so successful.”
