Bluewave took a small poomsae and sparring team to the Capital Cup today, held this year in Aylesbury rather than its more traditional venue of Brentford. The organisation of the event was not necessarily always smooth but our team of players did the club proud. Photos will follow later, however the results where;
Sian Reilly, Silver Medal, U17 A Class
Coleen Reilly, Gold Medal, U30 A Class (after a run off as she was level on score)
Lynne Firth, Gold Medal, U60 A Class
Sean Carsten, Quarter Final, -28Kg, Peewee B Class
Cullen Walker, Silver Medal, -25Kg, Peewee B Class
Neo Botha, Silver Medal, -41Kg, Cadet A Class (losing final only on golden point)
Alex Walker, Silver Medal, -57Kg, Cadet A Class
Well done everyone.
Thank you also to Callum and Coleen for coaching and also to Sian for corner judging through to the end of the day at 7.15pm.
There will be plenty more opportunities for competition this year. If you are interested then come along to either the monthly poomsae competition training, or the weekly Sport Class for sparring. We will also be running a taster session at the Sport Class in a few week specifically to give those who want to have a go a chance to understand a bit more about the sport side of Taekwondo and have a go playing in full competition equipment. Watch out for the date!
