Beccles Taekwondo Club at GTUK British Championships April 2016

British Individual Championships

Well done to Beccles Taekwondo Students who performed brilliantly at the recent

GTUK British Individual Championships

held at Ryton on Dunsmore Nr Coventry

The Beccles club entered a squad of 8 competitors across all age categories and came back with a total of 11 medals between them, with 6 Gold and New British Champions!

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 great medal haul.

Mr-and-Mrs-Bedingfield

The squad were accompanied by instructors Mr and Mrs Bedingfield who were on hand all day officiating at the tournament along with GTUK senior instructors and students from all over the UK.

Beccles Taekwondo Competitors results:

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

Barbara Mazza, Veteran Female Black Tag: Gold Patterns, Bronze Sparring

Gary Wheeler, Veteran Male Black Tag: Bronze Patterns, Bronze Sparring

 Glen Thomson, Adult Male Yellow Tag: Gold Patterns, Silver Sparring

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

The clubs Pee Wee competitors: Bella Gibson Black Tag, Ben Chapman Red Belt, Jack Chapman Red Belt, competed really well against strong competition and just missed out on the medal positions.

Well done to all our Beccles Taekwondo students who attended the GTUK East 1st Quarter Grading held at Bungay 20th March.

100% pass!

As always the examination includes demonstrations of techniques including kicks, punches and blocks, patterns (sequences of moves), sparring, self-defence, power destruction and Korean technical language.

The Beccles and Bungay clubs are both centres for the local community with many parents training with their children. So if you would like to learn one of the Worlds best martial arts, 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.
