More than 1,200 competitors from all over Great Britain battled it out at the Worcester Arena in their respective divisions.

And senior instructor Annabel Murcott - who is also a world master in the sport - was delighted with the medal haul with students competing in individual patterns, sparring and destruction as well as team events.

She said: "Our team always amazes us. They are so dedicated and help one another.

"All the students support each other and, as soon as they compete, they then jump to another area to give support to other competitors, new and old.

"The fact they all look out for each other is proof in our results. I am so proud of all of them just for taking part and winning is the bonus.

"We have quite a few new and up-and-coming students that will become future champions.

"We have the World Championships next year which I know will be an awesome event for us all."
