A total of 200 students of the Chundokwan Taekwondo achieved promotion to their next belt during two weekends of intensive grading at their Ferryhill headquarters.

The overall standard was excellent and Master Steve Robinson, chief instructor, was very pleased with the continuous improvement seen at every grading, especially in the case of a few notable students who managed to win double promotion due to exceptional technique and focus.

The students hail from North Tyneside to North Yorkshire, and from the coast to the central parts of Durham and areas around Darlington and Aycliffe.

The development and improvement of the students is especially pleasing to their instructors and families. Master Steve Robinson welcomes anyone interested in joining this very successful and enjoyable group More details available on the Chungdokwan website www.chungo.org
