Mr T was honoured to be asked to be on the coaching team for the Kuala Lumpur team in the Malaysian National Championships. It was an amazing experience to travel to Malaysia and help train and coach the KL team. Thank you Master Tan for inviting me to be part of your team.

Here is a great article on 15 benefits of children practising the Martial Arts
There is no adults class on bank holiday Monday (28th August). There will be an adults class on Thursday.
On the 25th June Tunbridge Wells Taekwon-Do took 14 competitors to the 2nd Vision league championships of 2017 to Alton. The kids competed in 3 disciplines; patterns, sparring and special technique whilst the adults did patterns, sparring and power breaking. This was a really great competition, especially for those competing for the first time.
Well done to all the students who took part and many thanks to Mrs Budd and Mr T for refereeing all day and to all the parents that gave up their Sunday to support their children.
The next competition is much closer to home (Tonbridge!) so we hope to take a large team and move up the overall medal table.
Here are the photos of the students.
