Beccles Taekwondo demonstration
Beccles Taekwondo demonstration

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.

Classes are on Tuesday evenings 8pm to 9.30pm at St John Ambulance Hall, Blyburgate, Beccles.

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!
