Christmas at St. Albans TaeKwonDo

With over 110 students attending the Christmas party and awards night, the night was one to remember. Master Snow and Tracey excelled once again, putting on a night of entertainment. There was a buffet fit for a king, the DJ service was provided by Master Snows’ DJ company and a projection of many films of action from 2018 showing in the corner of the room. Here is the list of all the winners and promotees. We thank all of you for attending.
