Well done to all Round House TKD members that were competing on Sunday 23rd February 2014 at the Yorkshire 1 on 1 Match Time Competition held at the Richard Dunn Sports Centre in Bradford. Every young person from Team Round House put in a fantastic performance. This includes Sam Magaway in her first competition, Farhan Rehman (Action Movie Star) & Athar Iqbal. All the decisions were very close and as always we learn from each fight and the competition experience. A special mention goes out to our 2 youngest competitors Thierry ‘T’ Molloy & Noor Yaser. Little 7 year old ‘T’ entered his first competition, Thierry was up against a competitor that was a higher grade but this did not deter little ‘T’. Little ‘T’ scored some fantastic head shots and was cruising to victory 4 nil, until the last few seconds when Thierry’s points scored seemed to go up onto his opponents, finishing 5-4. There was a second round stoppage for 8 year old Noor Yaser. Noor was consistently scoring with head shots and the match got stopped at 23-3 with Noor taking gold. Once again Team Round House captain, Brad Bergamini won gold by a first round TKO with a tornado kick to the head. Thanks to Horizon Taekwondo Academy for organising a great tournament.
