A member of Buxton Taekwondo Club is celebrating after winning a bronze medal in a prestigious national competition.

Joseph Dixon entered many events during 2018, but by far the biggest was the British Taekwondo Championships in Bristol, which featured over 2,000 competitors.

And the eight-year-old, who is described as a “dedicated” student by his instructor Jane Kirk, returned home with a bronze medal in the sparring section.

Jane added: “Joseph enjoys nothing more than competing. He is a pleasure to teach, and over the years I have seen his confidence and skills improve greatly.

“Joseph is hoping to continue his success throughout this year.”
