Brown Taekwondo spars their way to victory in national championship

Wondering where all of Brunonia’s past sporting glory has gone of late? Well, wonder no more, and join BlogDH in extending congratulations to Brown Taekwondo for winning first place in Division II of the annual Eastern Collegiate Taekwondo Conference last Saturday, November 22 (taekwondo tends to fly under the radar, hence our slight delay in relaying the news)! The conference was hosted here, on campus, in the OMAC and included 365 competitors, including MIT, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Princeton, and Tufts. If only the Brown v Harvard Game for the 250th was a taekwondo match… We’ll keep it in mind for Imagine Brown 500+.

This isn’t Brown Taekwondo’s first major victory, either. Last April, they won first place at the National Collegiate Taekwondo Association Championships. Altogether, they have 4 overall National Champion titles and seven Novice Division National Champion titles. So the next time you see them practicing in Kaspar, know you are watching champions. In fact, they are doing this when you aren’t looking:

Once again, congratulations and keep kicking some face.
