Competition results

georgeOn 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.

Results:

  • Jack Sydenham silver in sparring, bronze in special tech
  • Mike Westlake gold in patterns, gold in breaking, silver in sparring

Term start dates

kids tkdWe are now on Easter break! There are still adult classes at St Greg’s except on the bank holidays. So…

3rd, 6th, 10th and 13th April are adults classes (8pm)

No class on Monday 17th April as it is Easter Monday. Then that week Mr Thompson is away coaching the England team at the European Championships so there is only an adult class on Thursday 20th and Monday 24th April.

Kids classes start back on Tuesday 25th April. The following Monday is a bank holiday so the extra Monday will be put on in half term week.
