I had the privilege of visiting British Taekwondo South this week. They train at Holy Family Catholic church and have a suprising amount of champions for one club
I met the head coach Joe Brown who told me at the recent British Championships 6 of his fighters became advanced national champions , the most per club anywhere in the UK.
These fighters and coaches are making Southampton very proud as they travel around the country and indeed the world winning medals for their sport. I also greatly appreciate the work Joe, and the other staff at BTS are doing for all of the young people who attend the club and the work they are doing for sport here in Southampton.
I wish the club the best of luck in the future, and who knows maybe the next British Olympic Taekwondo champ will be from our city!
