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.
We look forward to seeing you online on Saturday.
Following the government announcement yesterday evening we will need to change back to online (Zoom) traning for 4 weeks. Today's and Monday's classes will continue as normal but after that we will have to move to online only. We hope to be able to return to physical training again on Thursday 3rd December.
Unfortunately this also means that we will need to postpone the kup grading that we were due to run on the 28th November. We are looking at the option of continuing with our monthly competition poomase training but using an online format for November's planned sessions on the 7th and 21st. We will confirm details later.
As we want to ensure to continue the physical and mental wellbeing of our members we will keep to a full online schedule to enable all members to train at least once a week. The online class schedule will be;
Open to all ages and grades.
Sundays 5.00-5.45pm - Focus is on Beginner to Blue Tag techniques and patterns.
Sundays 6.00-6.30pm – Stretching and Flexibility
Mondays 7.15-8.00pm - Focus is on more senior, Blue Tag+, kup techniques and patterns.
Fridays 5.00-5.30pm - A KickStars class based around MultiSkills drills and basics for our younger members.
Fridays 5.45-6.30pm - Higher energy, footwork and drills.
Minimum grade of 1st dan black belt.
Mondays 8.15-8.45pm – Dan grade poomsae
We hope that you will be able to join us at these classes and keep up your training. We appreciate your support at this time and continue to look forward to a time where we can resume physical training again
Please also remember that there is a full range on online resources on the club website. If you logon you will have access to full details of the syllabus including videos of all basics techniques, poomsae and kibon patterns. We hope these will also let you keep up with your training at home over the next four weeks.
Most of our classes are currently full so we are delighted to announce that we will be adding an additional class to our Taekwondo schedule from Saturday 7th November running from 11.00am-12.00pm. This will be a general class for all ages 7+, suitable both for existing Bluewave members and new beginners.

Well done to our 4-6 year old Kickstars group who took their grading last week and moved onto new belts. Great to see the 7 taking their very first grading and 4 moving onto Yellow Tag and into our regular Taekwondo grading syllabus. Lots of enthusiam and spirit!
This month we started running fortnightly Poomsae Competition training sessions. We wanted to make sure that everyone at Bluewave and other British Taekwondo clubs have the opportunity to do physical training.
Yesterday was our second October session and it was another fully booked session. This month we had over 30 different members from 8 different clubs join us for 3 hours of Poomsae training!
