CONGRATULATIONS to all the martial arts students from the Beccles Taekwondo and Bungay Taekwondo clubs who passed their Summer Belt Grading.
The examination was held at Bungay High School on 24th June 2018
GTUK Regional examiner Mr Steve King 6th Dan from Wellingborough, said this was one of the best gradings he had seen and was very pleased with the standards displayed by the students on the day, he congratulated them on their work and commitment to their training, and they were rewarded with an excellent 100% pass rate!
The 3 hour examination includes demonstrations of techniques including kicks, punches and blocks, patterns (sequences of moves), sparring, self-defence, power destruction and Korean terminology for the techniques in their individual belt grade syllabuses.
The clubs are run independently but both are affiliated to the same Taekwon-do association the GTUK, and teach the original ITF style of Taekwondo. The clubs are very family orientated, with many parents training with their children. The youngest students are 5 years old and there is no upper age limit.
