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!

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!
