British Open Taekwon-do Championships 2020 (2021)

Newly formed ICENI Taekwon-do took a small group to Coventry for the GTUK British Open Championships, and came back with 5 medals!

  • Jason Drake 2nd Dan Black Belt won a Silver for Sparring
  • Michael Wickwar Green Tag, won Gold for Patterns and Gold for Sparring
  • Danny Abramson Green Tag, won Silver for Patterns and Silver for Sparring
  • Amanda Dykes was in full support, along with ICENI instructors and officials Mr and Mrs Bedingfield.

But there is more to this story than just the medals…

This was the first tournament since the pandemic lockdowns, and both Danny and Michael joined the club while training was restricted to socially distanced techniques with no contact. This was then followed by a lengthy spell of training at home via zoom sessions with their instructors, sometimes with very poor internet connections, and very small training spaces in their homes.

Only in August did they actually get to hit a bag and were allowed close contact sparring tuition.

So their achievements, like so many at this tournament, was a victory for all those who have persevered to learn Taekwon-do through the pandemic, supported by hard working instructors who would not give up their dedication to teaching Taekwon-do.

If anyone out there wishes to join us at ICENI Taekwon-do please go to our booking page for more information on how to book a free session: iceniTKD.uk

Past, Present & Future

We are rebranding as ICENI TAEKWON-DO, so please bare with us as we make the changes.

Our booking system has been updated and works as previously.

BOOK CLASSES HERE!

As long time instructors, we felt it was a good time to change our identity, one that more represents the locations of our students who come from all over the Norfolk and Suffolk region to learn our martial art: Lowestoft, Beccles, Bungay, Loddon, Halesworth, Southwold, Great Yarmouth, Gorleston, Carlton Colville, Oulton Broad, Norwich, Harleston . . .

The new logo is an ancient ICENI celt triskele symbol.

The 3 spirals have many meanings relating to the circles of life, and the spiritual elements of the Earth, all of which fits perfectly with the teachings of Traditional Taekwon-do: 

Past, Present & Future

We have learnt from our Past instructors, we instruct to our Present students, who are the Future of Taekwon-do!

Mind, Body & Indomitable Spirit

The club website, facebook and twitter accounts, will all be rebranded over time . . . there are a lot of references to Beccles Taekwon-do to update on the internet.

All previous website links will still be active, but 

icenitaekwondo.co.uk

will now be our new dominant domain name once the switch is complete!

We will also be ordering dobok badges to go over the existing Beccles logo should anyone want to sew them on, but existing Beccles doboks are still fine to wear.

… and look out for our NEW TIGER, he will also be part of the general branding for promotions and advertising!!

New T-shirts and Hoodies will soon be available.

See you in the dojang soon.

Mr & Mrs B.
