Taylor can do Tae Kwon do!
Taylor Smith, Year 10 student at The Coleshill School, is now an ITF Team England Tae Kwon do member. Taylor will be representing England in April 2018 at the European Cup in Slovenia in the sparring and patterns group for 14 to 17 year old female 1st Dan Group.
Taylor, aged 14, won two gold medals in Tae Kwon do at the By the England Team competition in October last year. She is ranked number one in England in the Tae Kwon do 14-17 year old male and female red belt black tag patterns section and also ranked number one in female open weight red belt black tag sparring.
While competing in October, the England coaches were in attendance and Taylor was informed that she could attend the next Team England selections in February 2018 – now she has been selected.

We are very proud of all that Taylor has achieved. We have been following her progress and to see her ranked Number one in England is an amazing achievement. We wish her lots of luck in the European Cup in April.”
