Taekwondo Tuition in Beccles Schools & New Banner

New Banner and Taekwondo Tuition in Beccles Schools

Taekwondo Tuition in Beccles Schools & New Banner

We have started to give introductory lessons to students from the age of 10 upwards, with the kind permission of the following schools:

Sir John Leman High School

Beccles Free School

All students in the schools will have the opportunity to try the sport of Taekwondo during their normal school sports activities.

Hopefully many will enjoy this introduction to our sport and come and join us at the Beccles Sports Hall on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7pm.

We are also hoping that this will be an ongoing link between Beccles Taekwondo Club and the local schools.

To help promote our sessions we have purchased a new banner which will be on display whenever we teach.

So hopefully we will see some new faces in the dojang very soon.





Equipment at the ready at Beccles Free School where over 100 students got the chance to try Taekwondo this week! ;)

Taekwondo Seminar and Winter Grading

Taekwondo seminar

Taekwondo Seminar and Winter Grading

Students from Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs gathered for a winter grading and Taekwondo seminar hosted at Bungay High School where 50 students took their next examination in order to move up to the next belt in this Olympic martial art. 

Seven students passed their provisional black belt meaning they can now get ready to take the full black belt examination in May, whilst all students demonstrated great enthusiasm and endurance during the four hour seminar where a range of techniques, patterns, self-defence, sparring and destruction were all tested alongside Korean terminology.

Mr Steve King (Sixth Degree) said that standards were excellent and they were all a credit to the region and their instructors whilst Mr Darren Twelvetree (Fourth Degree) commentated on how eager students were to listen and respond to advice and guidance.

It is now a perfect time to start getting fit following on from the excesses of Christmas and the sport of Taekwondo is an excellent and fun way of losing weight, gaining fitness and suppleness as well as developing self-confidence alongside real self defence capabilities.

Taekwondo seminar

Both clubs are family orientated with many parents training alongside their children in order to gain new skills and a sense of wellbeing.
