The candidates at today’s Dan (Black Belt) Grading in London should be proud of their performances. They all showed quality across all the disciplines of Taekwondo – something that OBTKD has always looked to achieve. The candidates were put through their paces by the Taekwondo Chungdokwan GB Dan Grading Panel consisting of Grandmaster Lindsay Lawrence, Grandmaster Mark Biddlecombe, Master Michael King and Master Gerry Reilly.
The candidates’ preparation showed with confidence performances in the poomsae, controlled and effective one-step and self-defence and spirited sparring. It was also great to see the mutual support shown between the club’s candidates.
