Christmas 2020 Training

As we come to the end of a difficult year we would like to thank you for your continued fabulous support for Bluewave during 2020.

We just wanted to confirm a few things before the end of the year.

  • Classes will continue as usual this week. The final classes of 2020 will be on Monday 21st December 2020.
  • Classes will resume on Monday 4th January 2021.
     
  • We expect to resume 2021 with the current classes and government guidelines. If this changes we will send out a further email, update the website and post on Facebook.
  • If you wish to change classes, or perhaps for our former members come back to training in 2021, please check class availability on the website - HERE.  If a class is marked as full and you wish to be added to the waiting list please let us know.
  • We will be adding a new Saturday class which will run from 11.00am - 12.00pm starting on the 16th January. This will be an All Ages class for 7+ to adult.  If you or your children would like to attend this class please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
     
  • There will be a kup grading on Saturday 19th December. The first kup grading for 2021 is scheduled for Saturday 27th February.
  • At this point we do still plan to run our Bluewave Open Poomsae Championships on Saturday 5th June 2021. We will soon start preparing for this important event and will be looking for plenty of volunteers. We will also be running our regular Competition Poomsae Training on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month so we are hoping for a good entry of competitors from Bluewave next year.

Normally we finish the year with an all ages fun training session, club meeting and social event. This is obviously not possible this year but we will look to run a celebration once it is possible to safely lift the current restrictions.

We wish you a Happy Christmas and look forward to seeing everyone back training in 2021.

Competition Poomsae Training

Poomsae Dec 2020.jpg
Well done to everyone who trained so hard both in the dojang and online at Saturday's Competition Poomsae Training.  Really good turnout for the middle of December. 

In 2021, we will be continuing to run twice a month, normally on the 1st and 3rd Saturday from 12.30 - 2.30pm with an extra hour from 2.30 - 3.30pm for dan grades.  These sessions will be run as physical classes in the dojang. However in January the sessions will be on the 9th and 23rd January.  If you would like to register for the sessions please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

3rd December reopening of dojang

We are pleased to say that we will be restarting physical classes from Thursday 3rd December. Working with the guidelines provided by British Taekwondo we have now reviewed any adjustments needed to allow us to resume training in a way that manages the risks appropriately.

We have updated the details in our "Return to Training Framework" which can be downloaded from HERE. This describes the details of how we are managing classes to provide a safe training environment. Please take a few minutes to review the latest version of the framework so that you can help us work within the latest guidelines and maintain a safe training environment for all  

The class schedule from the 3rd December will be the same as prior to the latest period of lockdown and can be found HERE. All Teen/Adult classes, the Family class, the Stretching and Flexibility class and the Dan Poomsae class will also be available as streamed online classes as well as physical classes in the dojang. From the 3rd December the KickStars class, Junior classes and the High Energy/HITT class will only be available as physical classes.

Under the current guidelines we will need to continue to restrict our class numbers so pre-booking will be required.  We have allocated spaces for you/your children in the classes attended in the last two weeks before this last lockdown. If you wish to change this please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.as soon as possible.  We will do our best to accommodate any requests but this may not be possible in all cases. If you no longer need a place that you had for a class, please also let us know as we still have waiting lists for some classes.

We can also now confirm that the Competition Poomsae Training scheduled for Saturday 12th December will run as a physical class but on this occasion only we will also live stream the Competition Poomsae Training as we expect it to be over-subscribed.  Please let us know if you would like to have a space reserved for the physical class.

The next kup grading will run on Saturday 19th December. The instructors will be assessing potential grading candidates in the first week after we return to physical training. Guidelines permitting, the following grading will be held in February 2021.

Thank you for all your support during the latest lockdown period and we look forward to seeing you back in the dojang from the 3rd December.

7th November Competition Poomsae Training

We have decided to go ahead with our planning monthly competition poomsae training scheduled for this coming Saturday, 7th November.  This will be delivered as an online training session in accordance with the new restrictions and therefore we have made a few changes that we believe will make the session more effective for both the coaches and those attending. The timings will be;

12.30 - 2.30pm  Saturday 7th November

-- 12.30 - 1.00pm Developing basic techniques (all grades)
-- 1.00 - 1.45pm Kup Poomsae (all grades)
-- 1.45 - 2.30pm Dan Poomsae (black belts only)

We will be working on the poomsae in grade order for this online training and therefore you are welcome to either leave the training once you have completed those poomsae that you know or to stay and learn from work on higher poomsae.

We will review this approach after the training on the 7th and then decide whether we should also go ahead with the 2nd planned November session on the 21st November.

If you would like to register for the training please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. As this is now an online session there will not be any restrictions on the numbers who can attend.  Zoom details for the session will be send out later in the week to those who register.

We look forward to seeing you online on Saturday.
