December Grading Results

Congratulations to all those who were promoted following the grading in December. Well done.

The examiners were particularly impressed with the spirit and attitude shown by the junior grades. This was reflected in a record number of three double promotions and three credits.  The junior grades showed that they had established a strong base to their Taekwondo which will help them move forward. The senior grades, whilst performing technically well and showing good progress, could have shown a stronger spirit and this will be expected at the next grading.

The first Kup grading for 2010 will be on Sunday 28th February. If you wish to be considered for this by your instructors please make sure that your training is strong and consistent between now and the grading.

Dorset Open - 25th October

The club took a small group down to the Dorset Open on the 25th October.  Our competitors were Callum Walker, Alex Walker, Neo Botha, Jim Rate, Michael Digby and Dean Digby.

It was tough day with several of our competitors carrying minor injuries or having had recent colds, and this was reflected in some of the performances.  Michael Digby unfortunately had to withdraw injured during the 2nd round of his first match whilst winning by a point, and Neo unfortunately injured herself at the event prior to the match and despite competing bravely was not able to show her usual spirit and speed!  Alex lost his semi-final 2-1 when he played stronger than for sometime and was unlucky for some scores not to go up.  Performance of the day was from Dean Digby.  Competing for the first time for several years, he convincing won his division, 5-0, to take our only gold of the day.

This was our last tournament of 2009, we will now be focusing on training and preparing for 2010.
