A first year student at Huddersfield New College is the number 1 in Yorkshire for Taekwondo in his weight category.

Eric Kacica achieved the number 1 ranking at the recent Yorkshire Taekwondo competition.

Eric is fairly new to the martial art, only starting his training 2 years ago with the Premier Taekwondo team based in Birkby, Huddersfield.

Eric was delighted with his victory having only recently come back from an injury that put him out of action for a year. So it’s an even more incredible achievement he took the number 1 spot.

Eric’s dream is to represent Great Britain in Taekwondo at the next Olympics. If Eric can win every competition this year, including the nationals in September, he will become number 1 in England, and part of the GB Olympic team for Taekwondo.

Good luck Eric, HNC is right behind you!
