Three competitors from Botesdale and Stanton’s Kuk Sool Won group have returned home with a medal haul after competing in an international competition.

The International Kuk Sool Won Seminar and Tournament took place on April 19-20, and was held in Almere, Netherlands.

Two First degree black belts, JKN Paul Bell-Tye and JKN Josh Bell-Tye, travelled across the channel to represent the group alongside brown belt Joseph Jackson.

All three came home with awards for their efforts and achievements from the 135 competitors that took part.

Josh Bell-Tye received a copper medal for his techniques, with fellow First degree black belt, Paul Bell-Tye, collecting a silver medal in techniques.

Joseph Jackson won each of his disciplines to score four gold medals.

This result comes after the group impressed at a local competition in February, coming third with a tally of 23 medals.

The group meet on Mondays from 6.30-7.30pm, in Stanton Community Centre, and on Thursday at Botesdale Primary School – children from 6-7.15pm and adults 7.15-9pm.
