Connor Phillips and Bradley Dearney led the Huntingdon and St Ives Tang Soo Do Association medal mission at the National Championships last weekend.

They grabbed two golds apiece – in hyungs and sparring - as the local martial arts aces were among more than 400 from across the United Kingdom to descend on the Sports Connexion venue in Coventry.

There was also a gold medal for clubmate Peter Dudgeon in the weapons section where Phillips took silver.

Victoria Namur also collected a second place while Delphine Namur bagged bronze.

There was a hat-trick of top spots in the hyungs bracket courtesy of Phillips, Dearnley and Maya Pandey.
