NLTKD goes to ComicCon @ East London Excel 2013

The NLTKD instructor and students visited the London Comic Con. Different NLTKD students have been going to this bi-annual event on their own steam but this year we decided to go as a group. We had 2 group meet up at both Tottenham hale station and Stratford station. We met on the platform at the destination train station and went in as a group. Maybe next year we all go together in taekwondo costumes ??
