Arbroath School of TaeKwon-Do had great success at the Scottish Championships at Ravenscraig, where seven members won 11 medals from nearly 500 entrants over the two days of the competition. Instructors David Finch and John Hammerton accompanied the students to the competition where they fought in the sparring divisions, competed in patterns and demonstrated the jumping and flying kicks for which TaeKwon-Do is famous in the special technique event.
