Once again we have the honour of Grandmaster Shin Byeong Hyun visiting us from Korea in April. GM Shin is one of the world leading instructors and head instructor of the World Taekwondo Chungdokwan Federation. We will be running an open class with GM Shin at our dojang on Tuesday 16th April from 6.00-8.00pm. This will be open to all ages and all grades. Cost just £5 for Bluewave members and £15 for others.
Places will be limited so please sign up on the sheets in the dojang or on the Facebook Event at
Our second Dan grading of 2019 will be on Sunday 13th October.
In preparation for our 3rd Poomsae Championships we will be hosting an official British Taekwondo Poomsae Judges course on Sunday 5th May. This is open to 4th Kup / Blue Belt and above, minimum age of 16. Details can be downloaded from here.
Bluewave members who wish to attend should pass their completed application form back to one of the instructors rather than sending directly to British Taekwondo. The club will be paying the £45 course fee for Bluewave members who attend the course and commit to judging at the Bluewave Championships.
Congratulation to all our KickStars who were promoted following the gradings last weekend, especially to Rayn, Felix and Laurent who were promoted to Yellow Tag and are moving up to the junior classes.
Results from the junior/senior grading will be out soon!

The entry pack for our 3rd Annual Poomsae Championship is now available for download from http://www.bluewave.org.uk/images//CompetitionPacks/2019-Bluewave-Taekwondo-Championships-Entry-Pack.pdf.
To make this another really successful event we will also need lots of volunteers to help both setting up on the day before and to help with running on the day. Anyone welcome, parents, friends and of course Bluewave members. We are also looking at running a Poomsae Judges course before the championships so if you are interested in learning to judge please let us know, this will be open to 16+ / Blue Belt and above.
