Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs Winter Seminar Grading

Taekwondo Clubs Seminar


Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs Seminar Grading

Students from both Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs recently took part in their annual winter grading/seminar hosted at Bungay High School. A complete range of the belt grades took part, from white belt to black tag, and a few Black belts who joined the seminar.

The ages of the students taking part were from 5 upwards, all being tested on the progression of their Taekwondo skills and techniques including: punching, kicking, blocking, patterns, self-defence, sparring and some Korean terminology. The senior students also have to do destruction which is the breaking of plastic boards with specific hand and foot techniques.

GTUK Examiner Mr Steve King 6th Degree from Wellingborough was very impressed with the standards achieved by both clubs and issued 100% pass rate.

Training is now underway for the upcoming Regional and National tournaments in February and April, the next club gradings will be at the end of March.

Both clubs are always ready to welcome new students of all ages and abilities to come and try this great martial art, ideal for families to take part in, as many parents train alongside their children.

Bungay train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and a special class on Wednesday for Bungay High School students.

Beccles train on Mondays and Thursdays at the Beccles Sports Centre, but also teach during the Wednesday enrichments sessions at the Beccles Free School.

Fantastic Beccles GTUK British Taekwondo Championships results

Beccles Taekwondo British Champions

Two very very proud Beccles Taekwondo instructors with their British Championships Medalists 🙂 🙂

Fantastic GTUK British Championships results

7 Students – 15 Medals – 8 Gold & British Champions!!

Beccles Taekwondo Club took a squad of 7 students to the GTUK British Championships held at Ryton near Coventry on Saturday 24th October 2015.

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 huge medal haul.

We even got a live radio interview with BBC Radio Suffolk who were impressed with the result!

 So a big congratulations goes to:

Barbara Mazza, Veteran Female Black Tag: Silver Patterns, Silver Sparring

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

Dean Harding, Adult Male Blue Belt: Gold Patterns, Gold Sparring

George Zachariades, Veteran Male Yellow Belt: Gold Patterns, Silver Sparring

Jade Kirby, Adult Female Yellow Tag: Gold Patterns, Gold Sparring

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

Maddison Harding (only 5 years old) Pee wee Yellow Belt: Bronze Techniques, Bronze Sparring

You all demonstrated incredible Taekwondo Spirit throughout the day.

Taking part in tournaments can be a daunting experience, but it is the only true way to evaluate your progress in Taekwondo, (and the quality of the teaching), but most of all it shows the dedication to your training that is required to succeed at a National level.

A Massive WELL DONE to you all.
