Black Belt Camp

We have been invited to attend the 2016 Black Belt Camp hosted by Master Swift and being held in Worcester in a beautiful 5 star Tudor Hotel on 26th and 27th November. This camp will incorporate Seminars being given by World Masters from many countries and a Black Belt Testing, Dinner dance and Disco on Saturday night. 

We have 1st Gup students who will be testing for 1st Dan and 1st Dan students testing for 2nd Dan. As you all know I tested for my 5th Dan in June and believe me I'm still getting over it. Took a whole week of intense training, teaching and testing but it was an amazing experience and so worth it.

We need to start now collecting funds for our trip down south. All students will be asked to participate in our endeavours. You will all be given a sponsor form so please help us to make this trip as cost effectively as possible.

All high grade adults and juniors have agreed to do a 24 hour sponsored training and 1000 board break. Some have decided to do 1000 patterns. Date to be announced. 4 to 7 year olds can do a 200 board break or patterns. 8 to 11 year olds can do a 500 board break or 500 patterns.

Lets make this as fun and successful as we can. If anyone has any ideas for fundraising or would like to help please get in touch with Mr C or Miss Kane. Thank you for your support in advance.

There is an exciting upcoming event which you are all invited to compete in. The Pan European Taekwon Do Championships are being hosted by the ITS in the DISC on 1st July 2017. More info to this space.

Day out to remember

Lamborghini...brilliant drive, 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds, then whoooooshhhh.

Ferrari....oh yessssss, 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds, amazing drive, catch me if you can. I want one...NOW.

Coming into land cos this motor would take off if it had wings.

Round the racetrack with a professional racing driver in the Atom, 150mph no problem. Loved it.

Spent a day at Ingliston Racetrack and drove a Lamborghini and a Ferrari then round the track as a passenger in an Atom. Pedal to the metal. What a rush. I'm going back for the Porsche and the Aston Martin Vanquish....yeehaaahhhhhh.
