Chungdokwan Ireland Open - 20th October

Five Bluewave members travelled out to Nenagh in Co Tipperary in Ireland to compete in poomsae at the 1st Chungdokwan Ireland Open Championships.  This was a chance for several of the club's instructors to have a chance to compete and continue to challenge treceived_178836796335330.jpeghemselves.  As this was a fairly small (and very friendly) event, the divisions were different to normal and afforded more competition opportunity with our members completing up to 11 poomsae!

All of our competitors medalled in their divisions and there were particularly good performances from Coleen to win the Masters (4th Dan+) division and Rachel to take a Bronze in her first competition for several years.

The Bluewave competitors were left to right

Master Coleen Reilly, Rachel Harman, Master Graham Jones, Master Gerry Reilly and Master Lynne Firth.

If this becomes a regular event we may well look to take a team out again in 2019.

Thank you to Grandmaster Sheamus O'Neill and the WTA for running the event.

Adult Recruitment

Over the last year we have seen excellent growth in our KickStars and Junior programmes but less so for adults. This means we currently have space in all three of our adult classes.

Taekwondo is an excellent activity for adults; for its physical benefits such as improving fitness and flexibility, for its technical benefits such as developing self defence skills, as well as being fun! It is also important for the club to have a strong adult base as this will help us develop new coaches and assistant coaches for the future growth of Bluewave.

We are therefore starting an adult recruitment campaign and as a part of that we will be running a one-off Adult Only Taster Class on Tuesday 13th November from 7.00-8.00pm. This will be free and open to both absolute new beginners as well as those who might have trained in the past and are thinking about come back. Please help us by talking to friends and sharing our posts on Facebook around this campaign.

Finally, if you are interested or would like more information please send us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
