Harrogate taekwondo club to hold international events

A Harrogate taekwondo club is to host an international seminar next May and will hold the "Mayor Cup International Open" on May 29.

Both events are at Rossett Sports Centre in Harrogate.

The events have been organised by the Harrogate Tae Kwon Do Academy founder and Sixth Dan Black Belt Kambiz R Ali, who formed the club more than a decade ago.

Mr Ali has forged a number of links between the North Yorkshire town and South Korea - the spiritual home of Tae Kwon Do. "Harrogate Street" was named in the Dubong area of the capital last year.
