Unite Martial Arts Academy are celebrating the remarkable achievements of one of their students this week as he was selected for the Taekwondo national development squad after starting classes only one year ago.

Joe Dove recently put on an excellent performance at the National Championships in September, bringing home a Silver medal amongst a very strong field.

Joe will test his skills and train amongst the best athletes in the country at the Taekwondo national performance centre in Manchester and benefit from world class coaching and performance analysis. This will give him a great opportunity to hone his technique and look towards competing at international level.
