Students at Raw Taekwondo Scotland were lucky to have a fantastic three-hour training session with Team GB’s Taekwondo athletes, Scotland’s own, Rebecca McGowan and the uk first and only ever male world Champion and qualified for Tokyo Olympic 2020 (-68) Bradley Sinden.
Attendees were put through their paces at the full time Taekwondo Centre in Cumbernauld, with sports specific drills for sparring, the Olympic Sports element of the martial art. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn from two of GB’s brightest young stars.
This session was great preparation for the young sparring team who were preparing to compete in the National Taekwondo Championships in Manchester which drew 1000 competitors from all over the UK. Raw Taekwondo is delighted to report that two of the competition team medalled at the highly competitive event. Sophia Shields, age 9 received a bronze and Lauren Dunsmore, age 11 earned a silver medal.
Raw hope to welcome Rebecca and Bradley back to their fully matted martial arts facility in Cumbernauld again before the year is out for another inspiring session.
