Anglemyers earn 22 medals at state competition
NIOBLESVILLE, Ind. — Anglemyer’s Tae Kwon Do in Constantine competed in the 2017 AAU state championships on Saturday, May 6 in Noblesville, Ind.
The local academy brought home nine gold medals, seven silver medals and six bronze medals which now qualifies them to advance, if they choose, for national competition in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. in July. Due to the expense of nationals and having to be there for one week, most qualifiers do not get to go on.
“We are very proud of our team and have been creating champions since 1986, when the studio first opened in Constantine,” said Chief Master Cindy Anglemyer, a seventh-degree Black Belt and former state, national and Olympic team member.
State competition is split up into forms competition, full contact and forms fighting.
Forms competition consists of doing a pattern of movements with intensity and focus and no contact to the opponent’s body.
Full contact Olympic Fighting, however, is exactly as it states full contact to the body and full contact to the head from a junior safety rule for kids unless they are black belt 13 years or older.
