MEMBERS of Denbighshire Taekwondo Academy recently represented Wales at the UK Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival.

Held on October 2 and 3 at the NEC in Birmingham, the Taekwondo Association of Great Britain (TAGB) were asked to provide a four Home Nation Grand Prix consisting of teams from Wales, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

After months of hard training, four members of the Wales team were chosen from North Wales.

Mike Pritchard was on the Men's team, Lewis Byles on the Boys team, Elinor Bonnett on the Ladies team and Freya Roberts Howie on the Girls team - all coached by Denbighshire's Gareth Pritchard 6th Dan.

After a long day of competition the Men's and Boys teams were victorious winning Gold, the girls winning Silver and the ladies finishing with Bronze.

Gareth said: "If anyone would like to try Taekwondo, we have clubs all over North Wales offering a free trial class to everyone.

"All clubs are part of the Taekwondo Association of Great Britain, the biggest martial arts association in Europe and established in North Wales for over 38 years. Call us on 07867 474819 to book a place."
