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.

Team LLTKD at the Nationals

There are competitors as well 😃 but we’re supporting the British Taekwondo National Championships with 4 Referees 👍.

We have been doing things…honest!

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…





…and a Happy New Year!


…to all our students, friends and family – wishing you all a very Happy New Year, may it be everything you want it to be as well as happy and healthy!  Keep kicking 🙂

Demonstration at St Joseph’s school

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

Date for your diary

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 👍

Happy January!

New Year 2015 formed from sparking digits over black backgroundSo, 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.

KickSisterWe’re also going to have a new women-only “Kick Sister” club starting at The Hive (watch this space) or get in touch if you’re interested.

Kili Climbers

David (yep Lee is standing in for him here!), Annabel, Heena, Ushma and Richard

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!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Best wishes to our American friends and students and a happy thanksgiving.
TASIS is closed today for the holiday but we’re back there on Sunday for the grading!
