Moldova European Championships 2015

The European Championships in Moldova was a fantastic experience and one that I will never forget. When the day of the competition arrived I was full of adrenalin. Soon it would be my turn to step onto the mat and compete. The standard was high all round. After calming my nerves I progressed through the rounds until I reached the final against Italy. A years’ worth of training all added up to this final moment. After performing my patterns Kwang Gae and Kodang as best I could the scores where shown which ended at 4 to 1 in my favour. It took a while for the result to sink in that I had won the European Championships. The trip was amazing and it was great to meet up with friends and make some new ones. It was a very successful event for the UTA and Team UK. A huge thank you goes to my instructors, Mr Bonfield and Master Horan for their tireless teaching and coaching helping me understand more about Taekwon-Do and its techniques. Another big thank you goes to my Mum, Dad and brother who have given up their own time and money to help me attend training and competitions. Thank you also to my fellow students for the support they have given me.
