HUNTINGDONSHIRE Tang Soo Do clubs excelled at the 12th bi-annual World Tang Soo Do Association European Championships, held last week in Cambridge.
The championships were held in the UK to mark 25 years of Tang Soo Do in the country. The sport started in 1984 when three clubs in Huntingdonshire under the guidance of Master Khan joined the Association. It has now grown to include nine master instructors and 600 black belts at 50 clubs throughout the country, and Master Khan heads up the European section of the Association.
The championships featured nearly 500 representatives from 14 countries, and was attended by Grand Master JC Shin from the USA.
