Club colleague Nicholas Eke, 16, took home bronze in his sparring category at his first ever kickboxing event.
Elite Tang Soo Do chief instructor Stuart Reason said: "I am very proud of how all of our students competed.
"We are fairly new to the kickboxing circuit and it's fantastic to see how well our students are doing.
"We have been mainly a traditional karate style-based club, but it's very reassuring to know that the skills we teach can be transferred to compete against many different styles with success."
