*August Training*

If you have been missing training already please pop down to see us on Saturdays at Ark Academy Wembley from 12 – 2pm. We’ll also have some additional Wednesday training sessions there before resuming normal Wednesday training at Canons School in September. Look forward to seeing you!

Congratulations to the Olympians!!

We thoroughly enjoyed going to bed late, getting up at the crack of dawn and sleeping during the day so we could watch wall to wall Taekwondo at the Olympics! Huge *Congratulations* to the GB athletes who represented themselves, their families and the country so well!

Summer holidays

St Thomas More Taekwondo, Whitchurch Taekwondo and Kingston University Taekwondo have been back up and running since the spring, but are now closed for the summer. Hope you all have a good break and hope to see you in September!

Training at home

Hi! Thanks for visiting our website. We (Lindsey) has been pretty useless in keeping it up to date 🙁

But aside from that… We’re still around and training twice a week from home.

It would be great if you could join us, and why not get your brother, sister mum or dad to join in too?

Hope you’re well and staying safe! If you want more details, please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you 🙂

“So I’m a black belt now what should I do now🤔?”

Funny you should ask 😄! There is a blackbelt training on 22nd June in Kingston. You have to be a Dan grade and over 16 to attend, but this session aims to offer participants something a bit different from the usual seminars. If you’d like more information, please ask one of the instructors or refer to the Chungdokwan GB website.

New Blackbelts!

Woo hoo! Congratulations to our new Blackbelts! And also very well done to those of you who passed their tests for 2nd and 3rd Dan.

Poomse-Judges-Course-2Poomse Judges Course
Casting the memory back to October, Congratulations go to GM Lawrence, Master Raymond, Master Donston, Heena, Carla, Claire who all passed their Poomse Judging Course held in Kingston on 22nd October.  It was a long, but enjoyable day and a great opportunity to keep up to date with the Poomse and competition rules.

All Grades seminar in Swanmore
A week later the club supported the association’s annual All Grades Seminar. As usual it was a great day and was made more enjoyable by having a National Poomse Coach in attendance!

BlackbeltDan Grading
It wasn’t long before we were back in Swanmore for the winter dan grading. Congratulations to on passing their 1st and 2nd dan gradings Shayan, Rhys, Sahil and Grand aka Mr B.

Poomse Competition January 2017
Sticking with the poomse theme, 6 LLTKD competitors managed to squeeze into the Bluewave open in Basingstoke on the 28th January. It was a first tournament for some so a great learning opportunity and for others a chance to add to their medal collection with two silvers and bronze. So pretty good going from the team.

University Championships, Worcester
Uni-champs-2017-2On the weekend of the 4th & 5th of March we had a clash; GM Lawrence updated his Centre Refereeing qualification while 13 members of the Kingston Uni team travelled to Worcester to represent the University in the annual University Championships.

The team had a fantastic result coming 9th out of the 50 participating Universities by earning 2 bronze medals in Poomse and 3 bronze, 1 silver and 1 gold in sparring. Well done to everyone!
