Good luck to Beccles and Bungay Students taking part in The British Championships

10 August 2009

Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs will be sending students to compete at the GTUK British Individual Championships held at Ryton-on-Dunsmore near Coventry on Saturday 8th March 2014.

For many this will be their first tournament, and a big step in developing their Taekwondo skills.

We wish them all the very best of luck.

Win or lose, always remember the tenets of Taekwondo:

Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, Indomitable Spirit

 

Introducing Taekwondo to pupils at St Michael’s Primary School, Gillingham Nr Beccles

Beccles-Taekwondo-fun-day01

Today Monday 3rd March 2014, we are off to deliver Taekwondo in 2 x 1 hour fun sessions to pupils at the St Michael’s Primary School in Gillingham.

We will deliver a format that was very successful when doing fun sessions at Beccles Sports Hall last summer.

And we will be taking ‘BOB’ along for the children to try out their new skills at the end of the sessions.

Our session will be based around the following:

* Read out the Oath and Tenets of Taekwon-do
 
* 5/10 Fun Warm-up (while talking about Taekwon-do)
including star jumps and spotty dogs (jumping/punching lunges)
light stretching
 
* Show how to make a correct fist 
sitting stance middle section punches with kiah (shouting)
 
* Show walking stance
line work going back and forth in walking stance 
then front snap kicks
then front snap kicks and middle section punches (Kiahing)
* We demonstrate and talk about patterns that are used in our belt gradings
 
* Students to pair up by size ready for bag work
front snap kick
turning kick
punches
combination of kicks and punches
 
* Tag sparring
This is where you pair up and touch each other on the back to score a point
We emphasise touch and not punch!!
This is to get students to move around in a natural way in preparation to real sparring
 
* We will show what a real spar would look like and talk about how our sport is semi contact not full contact.
 
* We will also demonstrate breaking techniques using plastic breaking boards
 
* Introduce BOB (Body Opponent Bag)
Allow students to punch and kick one at a time in a revolving circle
From experience children really love to have a go with BOB
 
* Warm down and give out leaflets and sticky badges to say they have done Taekwon-do

Interclub News

A BIG WELL DONE to Jason, Henry and Miss Jenna Akerman who attending the Wellingborough Interclub Tournament on Sunday 23rd Feb.

Bungay and Beccles represented the East and came 3rd overall in a competition that had 9 other clubs taking part.

These medals were really hard fought for, and well deserved see full report below.

Henry: Bronze Sparring, Silver Patterns, Best Male Junior Competitor of the day.

Jason: Silver Sparring, Bronze Patterns.

Jenna: Adult Black Belt Bronze Patterns.

beccles-taekwondo-interclub-2014-webIf you are interested in the next tournament just ask these guys what it felt like to compete!

East Anglia Interclub Success

Fifteen students of all ages travelled to Wellingborough in Northamptonshire to compete in this year’s East Anglia Interclub tournament and came away with a superb haul of 18 medals, 3 trophies and a creditable 3rd place.  The students from Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo clubs had the furthest to travel and the longest day but fought against stiff opposition in order to reach the podium.

Gold medals were won by Lucy Thurbon (aged 12) and Amanda Burden (who also won a silver for patterns and the best adult female competitor award), Lucy also gained a bronze for her sparring after bravely fighting on with a split lip.  Adam Fuller (aged 11) won silver for patterns and bronze for sparring whilst his brother Lewis (aged 15) won silver for patterns.  Jacob Burden gained silver for patterns and bronze for sparring whilst his brother Ben narrowly missed out on a medal in a huge Peewee division.  Danny Hammond won silver for sparring, Karl Swanston won silver for patterns and bronze for sparring whilst also gaining the best adult male competitor award, unfortunately his son Jake finished 4th in both sparring and patterns after coming up against larger competitors and narrow decisions. Liam Howes  (aged 12) fought bravely to win a silver for sparring in his 1st ever competition.  Jason Drake achieved a superb silver for sparring in an all coloured belts adult category in which he was the lowest grade whilst also getting bronze for patterns.  Henry Howe (aged 15) was rewarded for his artistic patterns with a great silver medal, and battled hard to win a bronze for his sparring, this also earned him the award for best junior male competitor of the day.

In the black belt section Jenna Akerman (aged 17) won bronze for patterns and Saskia Baylis (also 17) got bronze for sparring in the tough adult female category which rounded off a very busy day.

Clinton Gillett the area international instructor said “all competitors from the region did themselves proud as just having the guts and determination to stand up in competition and fight opponents as well as nerves deserves respect and admiration, only 10% of club members nationally compete so just taking part is a credit to themselves”.

Students are now gearing up for the British Championships and the next grading but there is always room for new beginners so if you want to come along to either Bungay or Beccles club you will be made very welcome in our family friendly classes and you can find details on our websites www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk or www.beccles-taekwondo.co.uk

Equipment & Dress code
All students are recommended to travel in casual clothes, please wear any club or GTUK merchandise if you have it. There are facilities there for all students to change into their Doboks when they arrive. Please don’t forget your belt! All boys are required to wear groin guards, and we suggest that any long hair is tied up and pulled back off the students face. If you have your own sparring gear please ensure you have it with you. We would politely ask any students that do have their own sparring gear, if they would mind sharing with any new starters that do not. Any jewellery should be removed, or covered with plasters if it really cannot be taken out; please be advised though any jewellery worn is completely at your own risk.

Format of the day
Students will register as a club, and will be taken through to the main hall, where they can rejoin their parents/guardians, we would recommend they then get changed and then use any spare time to warm up and practice. Grand Master Oldham and the senior grades will open the tournament at aprox. 9:30. There will be a holding area where all competitors will remain until their category is ready to commence. Students will be called and will bow to the judges. In the patterns category they will be asked which pattern they will be doing, and they will then perform that pattern against their opponent, judges will signal which competitor is successful at the end. This will continue through to the final. Similarly for sparring, students will be called up, and will bow in and then students will compete to see who achieves the most points during the time.
Medals will be presented during a number of ceremonies throughout the day.

Tag Team Event
The Black Belt tag team event will take place as a demonstration event. The event will consist of a 4 minute sparring point stop session where the team members can tag in and out of the bout, after a point has been scored or the sparring has been stopped for any other reason. Teams can register on the day at the registration desk at a cost of £15 per team.

Photographs/Video
Any parents wishing to take photographs or video need to sign a form when they arrive into the building, you will ordinarily be issued with a sticker to show this has been completed. There will also be a 3rd party professional photographer onsite, who will be taking photographs during the day. If students’ photos are taken you can purchase these to take away on the day.

Food/drinks
We recommend that you take a pack up with you and some entertainment for young children. There is however a cafeteria which sells hot and cold drinks, crisps, bacon and sausage sandwiches for you during the day should you need it.

After Party
Everyone is welcome to come to the Heroes & Villains Theme After Champs Party at the Sports Connexion. Tickets are on sale at £5 per person on the day from the merchandise stand, or can be reserved via your Instructors before 19th October for £3 per ticket. The party starts at 7pm, and a buffet will be served at 8pm. The disco and bar will continue till late.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your Instructors on the day. We would like to wish you all the very best of luck and hope you enjoy your day, and also take this opportunity to thank you for your support!

GTUK Examiner Mr Clinton Gillett IV degree was very pleased with the progress of all students, and said that the standards were high.

From the Black Belts to the Bracelets

The High Rollers and The Taekwondo Specialists 

From the Black Belts to the Bracelets 

There is one time of the year when the brick and mortar casinos of the world renown Las Vegas are not filled with card patrons and high rollers. Instead of the usual poker players seeking for their first bracelet win or of regulars who visit the blackjack tables, what you will find are poker-faced martial artists boasting of their black belts and taekwondo expertise.

But what happens in Vegas, doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas since this martial art has long enjoyed success all over the world. Across the globe, people are practicing this unique fighting system be it in Asia or in other continents. One can say the sport is not just a martial art, but in fact a way of life. Among all fighting types, taekwondo has earned the respect of a plethora of fighting experts with its grace and simplicity. Although it may have originated in Korea, its popularity has already reached international fame. In fact, a handful of popular celebrities has been known to practice the sport. There’s former US president Bill Clinton, actress Sharon Stone, and singer Kylie Minogue.

sharon-stone-1

You see, Las Vegas may be known for its neon lit casinos, which are the ancestors of today’s Castle Jackpot mobile platforms, but behind the busy nightlife of the main streets lie a quiet yet persistent sport. And since Vegas is considered as the world’s entertainment capital, it is also home to top-notch facilities, especially in terms of catering to sporting hobbies. After all, the key disciplines of Taekwondo are not necessarily far from the skills employed by regular casino players. There’s always discipline involved in taekwondo’s mastery of form, which is similar to the crucial decision making factors of poker and casino patrons who struggles with whether to fold or go all in.

Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo students after their summer belt grading 2013 – Jazz hands version ;)

Beccles and Bungay GTUK Taekwondo Students took part in their summer grading at Bungay High School on Sunday 23rd June 2013

All students were graded on their individual belt syllabus, which includes, patterns, techniques, step sparring, self defence, semi contact sparring, destruction, and a test of their knowledge in both English and Korean.

The GTUK examiner Mr Steve King 6th degree from Wellingborough, was very pleased with the progress of all students, and said that the standards were high.

“An excellent 100% pass rate was achieved, with many being mums and dads grading alongside their own children!”

Now is a great time to start this family orientated sport, giving new members 3 months to learn the 1st belt syllabus in time for the September grading.

It takes 4 years to learn the full syllabus to become a 1st Degree Black Belt student.

We welcome students from the age of 6, there is no upper age limit!

News: Summer Grading, Doboks, Protective Gear

belt-grading

Summer Grading – Sunday 23rd June 10.30 am
at Bungay High School – main hall (unless otherwise instructed)

We will need the grading fee of £28 per person in cash the week before
 the grading please, as we have to prepare all the paper work before hand
ready to hand in promptly on the day!

Doboks
Doboks are not necessary for the first grading but if we get enough people interested we will be placing an order soon (postage is very expensive so we need to order in bulk).

Please come and get an order form if you are interested.

We have a size chart so come and discuss with us before you place your order.

Protective Gear
We only have a certain amount of ‘spare sparring kit’ to go around!

It’s always nice to have your own kit, you can keep it smelling fresh!!

Again come and get a form (basic kit starts at £50 this includes hand, feet and shin protection) but do ask for help with sizing as they do vary.

GOOD LUCK
with your grading and remember practice makes perfect!

Students from Bungay and Beccles Taekwon-do Clubs travelled over 300 miles round trip to Ryton in Coventry to participate in a Black Belt grading.

Clinton Gillett (4th Degree International Instructor and 2000 World Silver Medalist) from Bungay Taekwon-do club represented the Black Belts as their senior GTUK instructor.

Three juniors, Kalun Bedingfield and Jenna and Sophie Akerman, had a long gruelling day all showing great Taekwon-do spirit throughout their grading, were awarded their Second Star (1 1/2 Degree Black Belts).

Veterans Susan and Nigel Bedingfield also took their grading and again after a very long day succeeded in passing the examination to become 2nd Degree (2nd Dan) Black Belts.

The examination covered Patterns (formation of moves), Step Sparring (for juniors) and Foot Sparring (adults), Self-Defence, Sparring, Breaking plastic boards and wooden boards respectively, and lastly being tested on their Korean terminology knowledge.

Logan-ITF-2nd-Degree

Logan Bedingfield was awarded his Unified International Taekwondo Federation Certificate personally signed by 9th Degree Grand Master Hwang Kwang Sung.

We would also like to congratulate Mr Steve King, examiner of the Bungay and Beccles club gradings on receiving his 6th degree and to Mr Darren Twelvetree and Mr Priest on succeeding to 4th degree.

A superb result for a tough weekends work!
