The sport of Taekwondo ‘kicked off’ in Beccles last Tuesday evening followed by a very successful demo on Saturday

The sport of Taekwondo ‘kicked off’ in Beccles last Tuesday evening. The first class was attended by 14 students, and led by Black Belt instructors Susie and Nidge Bedingfield.

Then on Saturday, an excellent Taekwondo demonstration was put on which included 6 local GTUK England Squad members, 3 adults and 3 juniors, showing the powerful skill levels that can be achieved in this martial art.

On display were fighting patterns, punching and kicking techniques, self defence, destruction, and sparring.

After the demo, potentially new members were encouraged to come and have a go on a kick shield.

Taekwondo is a great family sport, where mums and dads can learn alongside their children.

If you would like to come and try Taekwondo in Beccles, please just turn up in joggers and a t-shirt, and bring a drink…1st Lesson is Free!

Ex TAGB black belt Jade Jones struck GOLD at the Olympics winning her division in the WTF sparring, when in the TAGB/BTC Jade trained with Mr Martin Williams, Mr Richard Saunders and Mr Adrian Jones, all in North Wales, before switching WTF to gain access to the Olympics.

Well done Jade from everyone at the TAGB. Nice to see you haven’t forgotten how to use your front leg side kick!   

The GTUK would like this opportunity to congratulate Jade & the TAGB on her great achievement at the Olympic Games. Read more:
