The Unified ITF World Championships were held in London over the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th of July. Red Star Sport Taekwon-Do sent a development squad under the coaching of Instructor Donna Mackey.
The squad which was made up of a number of junior and senior black belts and colour belts had been training for the championships for a number of months previous, and we are delighted to report that all the hard work paid off!
