Jodie Roffey was crowned ladies' red belt sparring champion at the TAGB English Taekwondo Championships.

She was one of 16 Bishop's Stortford & Epping Taekwon-do members in action, alongside more than 1,200 students from across the country, in Worcester.

Martin, Eason and Elliott Yung, Magdalena Montu and Louise Robinson were all competing for the first time, with Montu and Robinson both picking up bronze in sparring and were not far off placing in patterns.

Also successful were Annabelle Murphy, who entered sparring for the first time and picked up silver in the girls' tag team, and Paul Roffey, who won bronze in men's middleweight green belt sparring.

The other students competing were Cayden Hudson, Suliman Khan, Joshua Mullender, Kiera O'Connor, Cormac and Tom O'Prey, Alice and Hazel Roffey.

"This was first English Championships for three years because of lockdown and all our students did the club proud," said instructor Colin Mowatt, fifth dan.

"The day ended perfectly with Jodie being crowned red belt ladies' champion in her last competition before her black belt grading in April."

The club trains on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays in Stortford's Parsonage Community Hall and on Tuesdays in Thornwood Parish Hall.
