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.
Well I must apologise for not posting anything in quite a while. We’ve been pretty busy and so here is a run down of what’s been happening…
Today our Marlborough Taekwondo students are performing a little demonstration at St Joseph’s school summer fair. The last few years, the mats have burned our feet. I hope it doesn’t rain this time ☔😦 #sureit’llbefine
This year the Chungdokwan GB national championships held in Bracknell will be on Saturday 21st March. The tournament has filled up fast the last few years so if you’re interested in competing, let the instructors know ASAP 👍
So, I managed to write a Happy Thanksgiving post back in November, but not a *Merry Christmas* or very timely *Happy New Year* post, so feeling rather sheepish – Happy 2015 to everyone, particularly to our students their families and our friends. Here’s to a great (probably busy) and hopefully injury-free year! 🙂
The good thing about not posting for a while is that at least I can provide an update on the good things that are happening… Firstly, training starts back yippee!! So Kingston is back for the University students on Monday 5th (tomorrow) and The Hive is back on Wednesday, TASIS follows on the 11th with Marlborough starting back on the 13th January.
Another HUGE thing that we have planned this year is the charitable climb of Mount Kilimanjaro for the charity HOPE for Children.
Annabel, David, Heena, Ushma and Richard are representing the club and not only are they challenged with climbing the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, they also have to raise nearly £3,000 each, so we will be looking to hold some events to help them with their fund raising and we hope that you will be able to also contribute. If you want to contribute to the climbers as a group, let me know as I am doing a general collection for them.
Looking forward to a great year!
It’s the annual All Grades Seminar today in Swanmore and what perfect rainy weather for a day of training ;)!
