The GTI Charity '100 Rounds of Sparring' event is back! This year, we'll be raising money for Zoë's Place Baby Hospice in Liverpool, which provides specialist care & support for very ill babies and their families.
Can you make it through 100 rounds of sparring? Maybe even in fancy dress?! It's for a great cause, but it's also a good chance to improve your sparring. All ages and grades are welcome. Please let us know if you'd like to take part! Rise to the challenge and start getting sponsors today!
If you'd like to support our team, you can donate online and share our sponsorship page with your family and friends: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nwstkd. Thanks!

On Saturday 20th May, there will be celebrations taking place at All Souls in honour of the church's 90th birthday. This is a free event with refreshments available during the day. Our team will be putting on a demonstration at 1pm as part of the event. Come and see us in action!
For students who would like to help: please wear your white dobok & belt if possible, or your black t-shirt and training bottoms (if you don't have either of those, you're still welcome to come along). Please arrive by 12.45pm (in the church itself, not the church hall) so we can get organised!

We had 13 students competing at the Trident TKD Championships on 5th March, and everyone who took part did the team proud. There were some massive divisions and not everyone managed to come away with medals, but everyone performed very well and we are incredibly proud of their efforts!
The final medal tally from our team of 13 fighters was 13 medals: 6 gold, 2 silver & 5 bronze!
Special congratulations to our little first-time competitors, Kaden & Shivy, who fought brilliantly to win gold & silver medals in sparring!
Well done, everyone!

Callum received his award at the Liverpool City Sports Awards ceremony, held at Liverpool Town Hall on 1st December. This fantastic achievement derives from his commitment to training and his impressive taekwondo achievements; including numerous national and international tournament titles and recent promotion to 2nd Degree Black Belt - despite being only 12 years old.
Well done, Callum! Your instructors and teammates are incredibly proud.
