Congratulations to all Beccles Taekwondo Students who passed the June grading

A Big Congratulations to all Beccles & Bungay Taekwondo Students who passed their summer Grading at Bungay High School on 26th June 2016

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

GTUK Examiner Mr Steve King VI degree was very pleased with the progress of all students, and said that the standards were very high, he congratulated them on their 100% pass rate.

Young Bungay student Jed Baddour was awarded and A Pass for his Red Tag belt grading.

Beccles student Dean Harding was awarded an A Pass for his provisional Black Belt grading and has now achieved the status of Black Tag, his next grading will be in Coventry in front the GTUK’s Grand Master Oldham IX degree and Master Auciello VII degree.

The summer is a great time to start this family orientated sport, giving new members time to learn their 1st belt syllabus in readiness for the October grading, it takes 3-4 years to learn the full syllabus and become a 1st Degree Black Belt student.

If you would like to come and have a go the first session is always free, see our web sites for details of our training times and venues this summer:

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.
