Martial arts team takes first place

A martial arts demonstration team from Traditional TaeKwon-Do Center in Tampa took first place in the U.S. Open Exhibition Championships at the Isagenix Cup 2011 in Richmond, Va., this month.

The Tampa team was considered an underdog in the event because it received a wildcard invitation.

The team included 15 participants ranging from preteens to young adults: It consisted of Ezra Hayter, Jeffrey Charles, Tyler Rooks, Daniela Mancuso, Unique Wilson, Jessica Cummings, Jessica Hall, Daryn Steelman, Jeffrey Wingo, Steven Martinez, Sabrina Brunner, Daniel Riley, Evan Sadwick, Rafael Vaello and Andrew Cummings.

Grand Master Gerhard Brunner guided the team, and it received a $5,000 grand prize for winning.
