Armstrong’s Taekwondo won a total of 48 individual Washington state championships in the 2016-2017 tournament season.

The Clinton-based team recently traveled to Oregon City, Ore., to compete in the 2017 District Championships, where the top 10 competitors from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Canada duked it out. The team won 29 district championship titles at the competition, while Tara Armstrong was also awarded “Instructor of the Year” for the state.

The team is kicking off the 2017-2018 tournament season with an interschool tournament on Aug. 5 at Island Christian Academy. The Clinton school and a newly opened team in Oak Harbor will compete against each other. The event is open to the public.

A black belt testing is also scheduled for Aug. 4, the day before the tournament. Ten students will be testing for first degree black belt and second degree black belt.
