End to another fun year of training. We had a great turn out from across all ages and classes, with over 40 people at the final end of year training. Especially pleasing to see the turn out from the family class, with most of the regular attendees making it!
Following the hard training, we also a time to relax over some food and drink, discuss 2019 and look forward to how we continue to develop Bluewave into 2020 and beyond.
We hope everyone has a relaxing Christmas and New Year, and look forward to see you all in 2020.
Congratulations to the Bluewave team, Coleen Reilly, Joy Stirk and Ethan Core, who competed at this weekend's National Poomsae Championships at the University of Worchester. Excellent performance and medals for Joy (silver in 66+ Female Dan) and Ethan (bronze in P80 Male). It was also a pleasure for us to be able to work closely with several other clubs with our coaches Gerry Reilly and Coleen Reilly coaching and supporting several competitors from other clubs.

Bluewave took a small group out to this year's Chungdokwan Irish Open in Nenagn hosted by our good friend Master Sheamus O'Neill.
This was a small and friendly event conducted in the best traditions of the spirit of the Chungdokwan. It was also an honour to have GM Shin Byeong Hyun attending as a guest at the event.
There were medals all round for our competitors.
