beccles taekwondo grading

Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo clubs held their last belt grading of the year on the 16th December 2017

A very large group of students attended the last grading for the year, and were put through their paces, being assessed on all their Taekwondo skills, and successfully being promoted to their respective new belt rankings.

All students demonstrated great enthusiasm and endurance during the 4 hour grading where a range of techniques, patterns, self-defence, sparring and destruction were all tested alongside Korean terminology.

GTUK Examiner Mr Steve King 6th Degree, said that standards were excellent and they were all a credit to the region and their instructors, and as you can see by the faces in the photo, all students worked really hard but enjoyed every moment, adding to the success of both the family orientated clubs from Beccles and Bungay.

The grading was then followed by an end of year party and presentation evening for new belts and student awards, held at Broome Village Hall.

This included the promotion to 1st Degree Black Belt for Beccles Mr Gary Wheeler who successfully passed his destruction test on the grading day.

Students and their families then enjoyed Hog Roast, Cakes, and Sweets getting everyone into the festive spirit for Christmas.

Below is a small video clip of the grading warm up!


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.

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

So come and join us!
