The medallists qualified for the WTKA World Championships to take place in Italy.
The team took part in several different categories including kata, weapons, team kata and sparring.
Chief instructor Ian Parker said: “Every single one of our team did amazing and I am so proud of how hard the whole team is working in the sessions.
“This was the first competition ever for a few of the students who attended so to bring home European titles is outstanding.”
