Just a reminder that the club tournament is on this Saturday from 1 pm at Runcorn Club Hall.
Start time is 1pm and the spectator entry fee for non competitors is $10 for adults and $5 for children max family rate is $15.
Events are sparring, poomse, weapons , power breaking, high kick, Team poomse and creative poomse - something for all
On the day we will be fundraising for our latest charity ’ The Butterfly Foundation’
As a result of the tournament the following class changes are made:
Saturday ‘Tots Class’ is on.
Saturday normal class 9.30 - 11 am is cancelled.
Sunday night class at Runcorn is cancelled.
Due to a continual demand to train young children , we will be establishing a ‘Taekwondo Tots’ class for ages up to 6 years. The concept is to provide a kid’s class separate to older members, whilst transitioning those kids into the mainstream classes at the appropriate time.
The classes will be at the Mt Gravatt Scout hall – Logan Road Mt Gravatt each Saturday from 8.30 am – 9.30 am. The current fee structure applies
Classes start 2 June 2012 and interested persons should contact me via email to register.
The club tournament has been moved to Saturday 11 August to ensure it does not clash with either school holidays or the Qld Open Selections for the national championships.
Details will issue shortly.
There will be no tournament training for the next two weeks (13th and 20th) due to the club camp (13th April ) and the Ky-tu Dang seminar (20th April - Refer TKD Qld Website for further details).
These two weeks will be credited to your training block.
This year the club will participate in the Gold Coast open in late May, both in the technical and sparring events.
To enable the Brisbane coaches to plan their days schedule around the Brisbane players whilst also performing refereeing and officiating duties, those Brisbane players who attend our tournament training will only be coached on the day.
If your from Brisbane then you need to attend tournament training and be part of the team.
Your coaches must know what you can and cant do otherwise it’s all a guess on the day and that’s not fair on anyone.
Remember these coaches both in Brisbane and from the country volunteer their services and so we should all be considerate of their heavy workload on the day.
On behalf of my instructors and myself, i wish you all a safe xmas and a happy new year.
I also take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work and dedication throughout 2011
“It was a great day at Cho’s tournament on Sunday. Mr Lister and his club made us feel very welcome. Apart from the usual poomsae and sparring, they also had stick fighting and creative board breaking. David Pham impressed everyone with his creativity and won 2 gold in sparring - 1 in the red division and 1 in the black division (David accepting his medal in video). I also won gold in the poomsae”.
