We’re pleased to announce that we will be starting a new club in Tiffin Sports Centre, Kingston running every Saturday from 11am – 12:30pm. We hope to provide more sparring practice for students and utilise the mats that we have stored at the club. Do come and join us!
Students and Instructors from LLTKD made up a group of 15 from TCGB who completed a 3 day seminar organised by Chungdokwan Korea.
Held at the National Sports University near the Olympic Park in Seoul, attendees trained with students and instructors from the Chungdokwan groups from France to Hong King, Mexico, Singapore, the USA, Australia, Malaysia, Ireland as well as a selection of Korean instructors and students.
It was an event enjoyed by all and as well as a whirlwind visit to Korea it included poomse and kyorgi training, a Chungdokwan banquet, the obligatory mountain climbing, visit to the Kukkiwon and participating in a demonstration at a model Korean village!
For the last few years we’ve been invited to train at Tiger Cub TKD in Enfield. We went this year for another great session covering kyorgi techniques, poomse and breaking and a bit of impromptu demonstration of our own.
It’s nice to see the student progression and see their hard work paying off.
It was the first time that we’ve been invited to UKMAFA’s club to lead a seminar and it was a great day with lots of enthusiasm, energy and some good video editing afterwards!
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…
In a bid to disassociate itself with the commonly used acronym, the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) is planning to rebrand itself
Merry Christmas to all our students, friends and families. Hope you have a wonderful day and festive period!
Thank you to everyone for your support over the last year and congratulations to everyone who has achieved something in Taekwondo, from climbing mountains – in Korea, Japan and of course Mount Kilimanjaro! to officiating and participating in tournaments and passing gradings. All of you have contributed to the development of our great martial art and we look to achieve even more in 2016.
We mustn’t forget the people who we’ve lost in the year and our thoughts are with them and their loved ones at this time.
If you’re missing training, we still have classes on at The Hive and then we’re back on Tuesday 12th January at St Joseph’s and Sunday 17th at TASIS. But it’s actually a really busy start to the year with a Corner Judging Course in Kingston on Saturday 9th January and LLTKD BlackBelt training on Sunday 10th January. Please contact the instructors for more information.
Hope you have a wonderful day and best wishes from us all at LLTKD 🙂
