Seven students from Train Taekwondo Schools based in Stamford Bridge have been promoted to first degree black belts.

They have all been training for about five years since the club opened its doors in Stamford Bridge in 2011. The students are Harry Cook, Phoenix Taylor and Ash Lightfoot, who are all aged 10, Brad and Zac Lightfoot, aged 11, John Smallwood-Thompson, aged 12, and Sarah Sharp aged 14. They travelled down to the TAGB Taekwondo Bristol Academy recently for the examination in front of four eighth degree world masters and one ninth degree grand master.
