Taking part in tournaments can be a daunting experience, but it is the only true way to evaluate your progress in Taekwondo, but most of all it shows the dedication to your training that is required to compete at a National level. For some the day started at 4am and arriving home at 10pm. Well done guys, it shows that all the hard work and commitment pays off!

ITF styled Taekwondo is a powerful self-defence and sport martial art, suitable for all ages, so if you would like to come and try Taekwondo please come along for a FREE session (and you get a Free T-shirt) at the Venue Sport Centre, Ringsfield Road, Beccles, Mondays and Thursdays 7pm to 8.30pm.
