2015 Summer break

July 2015

Dear Parents/ Guardians & Members,

Taekwondo 2015 Summer Break

With the school holidays looming and impending holidays planned, we will close training between the 15th of August and the 1st of September 2015. Therefore, the last training session will be on Friday the 14th of August and we will re-commence training on Tuesday the 1st of September 2015, (usual times).

IMPORTANT: Due to the clubs being closed in the last 2 weeks of August, all students will have the option to train at both venues (Cowbridge and Porthcawl) for the first 2 weeks of August. This will give students the opportunity to train up to 4 times a week during that time.

May I take this opportunity to wish you a lovely summer break and thank you for your continued support to the clubs.  Please remember that I am always contactable on my mobile 07855487404 or by email: neiltkdfr@yahoo.co.uk

New Black Belts!

Massive congratulations to our new Black Belts Rhydian Williams and Rory Chapman!
The two boys recently undertook a very challenging Black Belt grading test to achieve the rank of 1st Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo.

The National Black Belt grading took place on the 26th of April 2015 at the T.A.G.B. Headquarters in Bristol. Students were put  through their paces to demonstrate their theory of Taekwondo, technical skills, as well as their pattern knowledge, application of self-defense and sparring abilities. The students were examined by a panel of Masters and Senior Instructors of the T.A.G.B. in what proved to be a technically and physically demanding grading.

Rhydian and Rory represented their school and Instructor in the very best light, and have now become role models and inspiration for other students at the club by joining the Black Belts ranks!

The many years of dedication, hard work and consistent training have finally paid off!

Well done boys for this great achievment!
