Last weekend was a really exciting one for Bluewave with over 100 people training in our various classes and at the instructors seminar. This came in a week when we had welcomed 7 new beginners to the club and with more enquires coming in nearly every day. Saturday started with a great turnout for our KickStars Class (including 2 of the new beginners) and then our regular Junior Class, finishing off with our Competition Poomsae Class working hard in preparation for the upcoming Ultimate and Quest competitions and the Nationals. Sunday afternoon we launched our new Family Class, which we will be looking to build further in coming weeks, finishing with the regular Sport Taekwondo Class.
However earlier in the day, the instructors had spent 3 hours with Mark Howick of Inspired Fitness Training in a workshop covering effective Warm Ups, Cool Downs and Stretching. Mark led an excellent session covering theory but with plenty of practice! As well as the Bluewave instructors we were delighted to also have friends from DTA, AWTC, Powerhouse and Waterside Taekwondo. Great to have local clubs working closely together to continue to develop our coaching skills. This will hopefully be the first of several seminars that we will run for the instructors so we can all continue to develop our skills and ensure that we deliver the very best experience for the members of Bluewave (and the other local clubs who want to work with us on instructor development).
