Tomorrow is the first class back at Kingston University after the long summer break. It’ll be great to see all the old faces and of course all the new Freshers at Tiffins!
We’ve been reminiscing about the club and think that this is the 20th year 😱 that Master Lawrence has been teaching!!!!!
Last weekend saw the annual British Taekwondo National Championships held in Manchester national cycling centre. With over 700 competitors over the two days, it was the place to showcase British Taekwondo fighting talent.
According to our inside sources (Ushma and Heena) who were officiating (very proud of them both), it was a extremely successful tournament.
Spectators and Officials enjoyed watching London 2012 bronze medallist Lutalo Mohamed and Mahama Cho amongst others fight. There was also the opportunity to meet Golden Girl Jade Jones and one of the most successful British Taekwondo athletes Sarah Stephenson.
In addition to the seasoned fighters, it was great to see the up and coming fighters and the new talents from “Fighters Chance”. Best of all though, was that St Katherines TKD did very well, in addition to other Chungdokwan clubs.
Congratulations and well done to everyone who participated and officiated to make such a successful event.
I’m sure our officials will be there next year as well as some of the students looking to represent LLTKD!
It’s already been a couple of busy weeks back after the summer break. Nearly all of the clubs are back up and running with only Kingston University starting at the end of the month to go.
There’s already been a grading at The Hive for those who have been training throughout the summer and some of our black belts attended the Jade Jones and Paul Green Sparring Seminar hosted by fellow Chungdokwan GB club Waterside TKD.
You’ll no doubt, be seeing the impact of some of the techniques soon, so get stretching and keep yourself flexible!
Thanks to Darren for letting us use his photos from the day!
