This week we had a guest ITF Black Belt student from Spain join the class

Daniel Wickham lives in Spain most of the time, but also visits Beccles during the year from time to time, so popped in for a training session with the Beccles Club.

Photos show Daniel on the right lined up with a few of the Beccles senior crew after the training session.

Club instructor Mrs Bedingfield (3rd from left) said he was an excellent student, a credit to his instructors, and is always welcome to join the Beccles club sessions whenever he is in town.

2nd Quarter Belt Grading Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs, 17th June 2017

Beccles Taekwon-do Club Summer Belt Grading Success

Photo includes GTUK Regional Examiner Mr King VI, Mr Gillett V. Not in the photo are Mr Bedingfield III (taking photo), and Mrs Bedingfield II attending her recently born twin granddaughters 🙂

Well done to all the martial arts students from Beccles Taekwon-do club who attended their Summer Belt Grading held at Bungay High School on 17th June on a blisteringly hot afternoon in the Dojang.

Regional examiner Mr Steve King 6th Dan from Wellingborough, was again very pleased with the progress of all students, and said that the standards continue to be very high, he congratulated students on their work and commitment to their training, and they were rewarded with an excellent 100% pass rate! 

The 3 hour examination includes demonstrations of techniques including kicks, punches and blocks, patterns (sequences of moves), sparring, self-defence, power destruction and Korean terminology for the techniques in their individual belt grade syllabuses.

The Beccles club is very family orientated, with many parents training with their children. The youngest students in the club are 5 years old and there is no upper age limit.

taekwondo instructors

The club is run by its fully certified senior Black belt instructors: Mr and Mrs Bedingfield, who are well supported by their team of Black belt and Black-tag students.
