Tae Kwon Do instructor becomes first female 7th Dan
Martial artist Annabel Murcott has ended the year by making history.
In front of thousands of spectators and competitors at the British Tae Kwon Do Championships held at the Derby Veladrome, Murcott was promoted to 7th Dan World Master by the chairman of Europe’s largest martial arts organisation the TAGB (Taekwondo Association of Great Britain) Grand Master David Oliver 9th Dan.
Annabel has gone down in TAGB history as the first female to reach World Master level as well as the youngest. This is made all the more special as the TAGB does not allow double grades or fast tracking through the grading system, therefore it is a minimum training time of 31 years that is if you pass every grading on time.
