Weston’s Dawn Emmery made history by becoming the UK’s first mulimpion in the Korean sword art of Haidong Gumdo at a recent international competition in Köln, Germany.
The Euro Mulimpia was attended by more than 900 students from 23 countries competing in the arts of Haidong Gumdo, Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, Kung Fu and Karate.
This was the first competition the UK has entered a team for in the art, with the team consisting of 14 students from Worcester, Tewkesbury, Weston and Edinburgh.
Not only did Dawn achieve double gold for advanced sword forms and targeted paper cutting, she was also awarded the title of mulimpion, a award given only to the top competitor in each category. She celebrated this success with her son, Matthew Emmery-Tabrett, aged 13, who also achieved bronze in his category.
