Tae kwon do helps service users in Norwich

People with severe mental-health problems in Norwich, U.K. have been learning tae kwon do. Ben Curran from Julian Housing Support Group got £10,000 from the National Lottery and £14,000 from Sport Relief to provide a year-long programme of weekly classes for up to 20 service users. All the participants said they felt more confident and motivated after going to their classes; their fitness improved and they took better care of themselves.
