Kootenay Taekwondo is gearing up to take part in nationals in Calgary next month.

The club are currently training four nights a week in preparation for the event. They are also planning a trip for some students to England next October for the world cup.

Club spokesman Gena Paton said the students should perform really well at nationals.

“We have some very strong students and we are confident that we will do well in the competition,” she said.

“We will be doing some fund raising during the next year to help the kids out with travel expenses.”

 

Kootenay Taekwondo has around 200 students. They train in the Crowsnest Pass and through the Valley all the way to Cranbrook.
