Meanwhile, first dan Woiciech Chojnowski, first kup Mateusz Soszynski and second dan Jennifer Lienig competed as a team in the senior team poomsae event and picked up gold.

Arran Campbell, who is also just 10-years-old and an experienced fighter for TTA Clydebank entered into the cadet category for competitors aged 10 to 13 for the first time.

Campbell didn’t hold back and kept the pressure on his opponent, winning a gold medal, while 15-year-old Lauren Gallacher picked up a silver after she was moved up to the individual senior category for 16-plus years for further experience and used her high section kicks to great effect.
