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.
Bluewave are planning a trip to Korea in the summer. This will include training at the World Taekwondo Chungdokwan Federation Summer Camp and time afterwards for sightseeing, shopping and even extra training. This is an excellent opportunity to train with some of the world's leading instructors alongside others students, masters and grandmasters from across the world, as well as experience the rich culture of Korea.
Congratulations to the students who graded in November. This was a very strong grading and saw some exceptional performances. Next grading will be on Sunday 17th February 2019.

Fun session to finish to 2018. Great to have a spread of ages (4 to 57) and grades (white belt to 7th dan) training together. It was also really nice to see lots stay on for the club meeting and social.
Presentation from the club meeting is available from the website. Just login and check on the members resources menu. Also checkout the new dan grading syllabus and draft calendar.
We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and look forward to seeing you back when training restarts on Monday 7th January.
