Beccles Taekwondo promotional belt grading

GTUK Beccles & GTUK Bungay shared a very successful Taekwondo belt grading on March 17th 2019

Both clubs have a very active student membership with over a 100 members between them and more than a third of them successfully completed their 1st Taekwondo belt grading of 2019.

The grading was taken by GTUK Examiner Mr Steve King 6th Dan, who said that the quality of student sparring, patterns, techniques and Korean terminology was excellent across the board.

There were some outstanding performances praised by Mr King from the Beccles students, newly promoted green belts Paulina Borkowska and Joel Thrower, along with Tyler Mingaye who had an excellent 1st grading.

A special well done to Beccles’s Blake Goffin for passing his Provisional Black Belt grading and being awarded his Black Tag belt, Blake will now start  preparing for his full Black Belt grading to be performed in front of GTUK Grandmaster Oldham IX degree at a later date.

Beccles & Bungay Taekwondo clubs held their last belt grading of the year 2018

Beccles & Bungay Taekwondo clubs have very active student memberships with well over a 100 members between them and 40 students successfully completed their last grading of 2018.

They were put through their paces by Mr Gillett 5th Dan, and Mr King 6th Dan the GTUK association Examiner from Wellingborough. All students demonstrated great enthusiasm and endurance during the 4 hour grading of techniques, patterns, self-defence, sparring and destruction, they were also tested on their knowledge of Korean terminology.

Mr King said ‘Standards were excellent and they were again a credit to the region and their instructors, all students worked really hard, and are being awarded a 100% pass rate’.

The grading was then followed by an end of year party and presentation evening of new belts and student awards. Students and their families enjoyed a superb buffet of savouries and cakes.
