Bringing Home Medals

WestportNow.com Image
Two Westport Coleytown Middle School students won medals at the National Taekwondo Championship in Detroit. EJ Herrmann (l) and Alex Turut (r), both 11, won medals for board breaking. Each had to break 30 boards in two minutes in their respective belt/age classes. They both train at World Champion Taekwondo on Franklin Street in Westport with Master Donghyun Jang (c) and have been studying Taekwondo since they were in kindergarten at Kings Highway Elementary School. In preparation for the national tournament, they practiced five days a week for about 10 months, according to EJ’s mom, Susan Herrmann. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
