ITF Open British 2019 in Crawley

Posted on 26/11/2019

Well I am immensely proud of Aidan Bailey and Iden Hubbuck (Chesterfield TKD) and Mikael Cacia and Josh Williams (all PUMA North New Century TKD students) for there recent efforts at the ITF British Open 2019.

The tournament attracts over 600 high calibre competitors, many of whom have years of international experience behind them. Our four students did not let this faze them, with terrific performances in both patterns and sparring from all of them!

Aidan Bailey (recently relocated and training with PUMA Swain TKD) secured a well deserved Silver in 2nd Degree pattens and Bronze in sparring. Josh Williams also won Silver in pattens and Gold in sparring. Iden and Mikael did not medal this time, but in tough divisions they should be proud of their efforts. I am sure with their commitment and attitude towards training, medals will come in the New Year!

Thank you goes out to PUMA coaches who coached on the day and of course parents for supporting the event!

I would also like to say well done and thank you to Mr Thomas Bailey who officiated at the event. A long and busy day be all accounts. These events can not run without officials - your time is appreciated!

Lots to look forward to in 2020. Some amazing talent in the Northern Squad and I can’t wait to see you all achieve new heights in the New Year!
