Fantastic GTUK British Championships results

7 Students – 15 Medals – 8 Gold & British Champions!!

Beccles Taekwondo Club took a squad of 7 students to the GTUK British Championships held at Ryton near Coventry on Saturday 24th October 2015.

This is a 300 mile round trip from Beccles, and many of the students come from further afield, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Southwold, so this makes it even more exceptional to travel all that way and come back with such a huge medal haul.

We even got a live radio interview with BBC Radio Suffolk who were impressed with the result!

 So a big congratulations goes to:

Barbara Mazza, Veteran Female Black Tag: Silver Patterns, Silver Sparring

Jason Drake, Veteran Male Black Tag: Gold Patterns, Bronze Sparring, Gold Destruction

Dean Harding, Adult Male Blue Belt: Gold Patterns, Gold Sparring

George Zachariades, Veteran Male Yellow Belt: Gold Patterns, Silver Sparring

Jade Kirby, Adult Female Yellow Tag: Gold Patterns, Gold Sparring

Alfie Woodcraft, Junior Male Yellow Belt: Gold Patterns, Silver Sparring

Maddison Harding (only 5 years old) Pee wee Yellow Belt: Bronze Techniques, Bronze Sparring

You all demonstrated incredible Taekwondo Spirit throughout the day.

Taking part in tournaments can be a daunting experience, but it is the only true way to evaluate your progress in Taekwondo, (and the quality of the teaching), but most of all it shows the dedication to your training that is required to succeed at a National level.

A Massive WELL DONE to you all.

The Great GTUK Bake Off

During the GTUK British Championships on 24th October 2015 the GTUK England Squad will be holding the first Great GTUK Bake Off! competition, open to all students and spectators.

To enter, you will need to bring your baked goods (cakes, biscuits, sweet pastries etc.) to the GTUK stall by 9:30am on the morning of the competition. We would like to be able to identify the baker, as there will be a prize for our Star Baker. You will also need to provide a description of the item and a list of ingredients. In the interest of safety we ask that you highlight any ingredients that are common allergens, including – although not exclusively nuts. We will assume that all entries contain gluten unless otherwise indicated.

During the day the Senior Blackbelts will taste test the entries and our Star Baker will be announced. There will also be the opportunity to buy the baked good throughout the day. All funds raised will used to support GTUK England Squad students, particularly linked to Argentina 2017.

Instructors, we would like you to promote this opportunity to any students who are attending the Championships

Taekwondo Family – A special poem about our Taekwondo club – from a special lady

Taekwondo Family

Taekwondo Family

Two years along who would have known,

a Taekwondo Family has evolved,

with hard work and caring too,

Susie and Nidge this is down to you.

Going through patterns and paces,

pure satisfaction on our faces,

all of this could not be done,

without the dedication of Sir and Ma’am.

One Big Family you’ve made us feel,

dreams coming true making them real,

training, get togethers, it’s great to see,

our thanks to you for ‘OUR’ Family.

Beccles Taekwondo Grading Autumn 2015

Beccles Taekwondo Grading Autumn 2015

The Autumn assessment for Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo students took place at the weekend with 35 practitioners gathering at the Sports Hall at Bungay High School to be put through their paces by International grading Examiner Mr Steve King (6th Degree) and they performed superbly.

The examination includes demonstrations of techniques including kicks, punches and blocks, patterns (which are sequences of moves choreographed together), sparring, self-defence, power destruction and Korean technical language.  This certainly tests every element of student progress in this Olympic martial art and many are tired and very relieved when the 4 hour test is complete.

Steve said “standards are once again very high and there are only a small number of corrections to be made for a few, well done to the instructors who help prepare their students so effectively”

The clubs are centres for the local community with many parents training with their children and we are always willing to take new students, so if you want to get fit for the New Year come along to a free taster session which you can find further details on the clubs websites. The youngest students in the clubs are 5 years old and there is no upper age limit.

Local press report:

Still a winning combination

Beccles Taekwondo Instructors Susie and Nidge Bedingfield are still proving to be a winning combination, both having won multiple British titles in their sport in recent years have now guided their Students to a Tug of War Victory at the annual Worlingham Fete 😉

The Tug of War took place after the Taekwondo students had very successfully entertained the crowd with a powerful demonstration of their martial art, showing their destructive techniques, punching, kicking, patterns, sparring and board breaking.

Many of these students from the Beccles club have won National titles for their sport during the last year.

The Beccles Taekwondo Club have just launched a new Tiger logo to celebrate their 3rd year in Beccles. The new Tiger is called ‘TIKWON’, and has been designed by Instructor Nidge Bedingfield who is the graphic designer for imajaz limited.

If you are interested in having a go at Taekwondo please visit the Beccles Taekwondo web site B-TKD.UK for more information, or just turn up on a Monday or Thursday evening 7-8.30pm at The Venue, Ringsfield Road, Beccles, you will be made very welcome.
