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.
