3rd Bluewave Poomase Championships

Group.jpgJOsh Tobin 2.jpg
Thank you so much to everyone who attended our 3rd Bluewave Poomsae Championships. Lots of great performances from competitors old and new. Excellent support from families and friends, and hopefully our new approach of not charging spectator fees helped a few more people to see the event.

Thank you to GM Tong Wan Shin and the team of judges including several from Bluewave; without officials events do not run.

Also a big thank you to the brilliant team of volunteers who setup on Friday night, kept everything moving on Saturday and then helped pack away after the event. Finally a big thank you to Master Lynne Firth who led the organising and to Master Coleen Reilly who ran setup on Friday and led the volunteer team on Saturday. Great job everybody!

The provision date for 2020 will be announced soon.

April 2019 - Dan Grading

Group April 2019.jpgOn the 14th April, Bluewave held its first direct British Taekwondo approved Dan Grading. This was a small start and allow us to test out our new syllabus and approach to gradings.

The four candidates were required to show their competency in all aspects of Taekwondo through demonstrating;

1. 5 poomsae
2. Performing 5 kup grade combinations and discussing the key coaching points
3. 10 one-steps from left and right
4. A full range of self defence
5. Sparring - both 1 for 1, and multiple rounds of free sparring
6. Breaking for 16+
7. Understanding of Taekwondo theory and philosophy

All candidates had prepared well and showed a great approach to their performances.  Bluewave is therefore proud to add Pradeep Lalung, Miranda Arnush, Jonathan Paduanelli and Darren Miller to our group of dan grades.  Well done!

Thank you to Corey Payne for assisting at the grading, and to our examiners - Master Gerry Reilly, 7th Dan, Master Lynne Firth, 5th Dan and Master Coleen Reilly, 5th Dan.

Our next Dan Grading will be on Sunday 13th October.  This will be open to not just Bluewave members but also other British Taekwondo clubs wishing to have their candidates undertake a rrigorous grading in all aspects of traditional Taekwondo.
