A taekwondo club from Stevenage has enjoyed success both at club level and on the national stage.
Powell Taekwondo, who train at the Nobel School, had four of their students competing at the British Championships and they came back with two silvers in the sparring category courtesy of black-belt Tina Bhoobun and green-belt Tyler.
Back at base more of their pupils have advanced through the rankings.
Four successfully achieved their black belt - Justin and Noah Howard, Mason Havis and Barry Long, while two became second dan black belts.
They were Bhoobun and John Patmore.
Sue Watson meanwhile not only became a fourth dan but also picked up international instructor status.
The club, which was formed in 2016, holds sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings between 7pm and 8pm.
