Northern Ireland Junior Taekwon-Do Team – A Force to be Reckoned With.

{N.I. Junior National Taekwon-Do Team at the Wishaw Open Championships 15th Sept 2013,
Another feather in the cap for Leo Maguire Taekwon-Do Schools (UKTC) was added last weekend as the  Northern Ireland Junior National Team attended the Wishaw Open Taekwon-Do Championships in Glasgow on the 15th September 2013 and returned with a staggering twenty-three medals in total.  The eleven team members returned to Northern Ireland on Sunday evening with fourteen gold, six silver and three bronze medals in three categories including sparring, patterns and special techniques.   This success is hot on the heels of the National Adult and Junior Teams record medal count in Edinburgh in May 2013 at the British Open when the teams brought a staggering forty-nine medals back to Northern Ireland.

Taekwon-Do is not only the fastest growing martial art in Northern Ireland, but the fastest growing sport across the province and Mr. Leo Maguire has brought the Northern Ireland National Team to victory at National,  European and World Championships in recent years.   The Northern Ireland Junior Taekwon-Do Championships will be held this year on the 29th of September at the new Aurora Aquatic Centre in Bangor and spectators are welcome to come along and get a flavour of the sport.
