Congratulations to all our students who graded on Sunday 16th Dec 2012, 100% pass rate, well done.
Students from Bungay and Beccles Taekwondo clubs had their last grading of the year and it was a truly successful one with Steve King 5th Degree grading examiner saying that the standards of the students patterns and techniques was the best he has seen this quarter.
There followed the end of year celebrations and awards with a hog roast provided by Grooms of Bungay with over 100 people in attendance. Pee wee student of the year went to Kylan Taylor (aged 9) with Adam Fuller (aged 8) getting runner up, whilst his brother Lewis Fuller (aged 14) received Junior student of the year with Josh Cawthorne (aged 16) getting runner up. The adult award was won by Amanda Burden and runner up was Karl Swanston.
Various other awards, certificates and belts were presented including the famous “Barry” (stuffed tiger) awards for specific talents and was crowned by a toast to everyone for their massive achievements in the year (over 100 medals at local and national competitions!) Black belts were rewarded for their efforts and teaching by Mr Clinton Gillett (4th Degree) who said that they make him and GTUK very proud.
The clubs will be closed for Christmas but will reopen with welcome arms for anyone who wants to get fit after the festive season on Tuesday 8th January, so check out the details on www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk or www.beccles-taekwondo.co.uk
