Kootenay Tae Kwon Do attended the National Championship in Quebec City with 13 competitors from across the valley on May 18 and 19.

Kootenay brought home nine bronze, two silver and two gold metals.

After months of hard training Master Sant Saran took his team to Quebec City to compete for a spot on the Canadian team, and he was not disappointed.

Crowsnest Pass resident Liam Arbuckle qualified and is off to Benidorm, Spain in October.

Sixty countries will be attending the four-day event.

Liam will have a short break to rest up and then heavy training will be on its way. Master Saran and other instructors will be working with him, along with other senior members of Kootenay Tae Kwon Do, to get him physically and mentally ready.
