Congratulations to our junior black belt, Callum Edwards, who has been named as Liverpool's Young Sportsperson of the Year for 2016!  
  

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.
