U- 18′s Tournament for 2014, A great chance to try out your sparring skills. oh and I guess patterns too!!!!!!!!!

April 16, 2014 in Events, News

Re posted from Mr Gwyn Browns Facebook Post

The Top Pro Under 18 Tournament is open for registrations!
Thanks to our major sponsor Top Pro, we are able to bring you a new series this year, of just two tournaments. The points have changed, there are a new set of rules, pee wees can enter, and thanks to Top Pro, and Fuji Mae our other sponsor, we have lots of spot prizes and giveaways. The first tournament is in Tauranga in May, and the final one in Auckland. Please follow the link to register, for competitors and officials.

The points system is especially different, you get points for entering, even if you don’t win anything, so they may be a deciding factor in you winning best overall for your division.

Some great bullying advice from Wil Wheaton

April 5, 2014 in Good stuff and random

Hi everyone

Here is some great advice about bullying from Wil Wheaton.

Practise your step sparring

April 4, 2014 in Good stuff and random, Taekwon-Do tips

Hi everyone

One big weakness at pregradings this week was your step sparring. You should be:

  • confident
  • well-practised
  • accurate
  • technically correct
  • strong

This is not the time to decide what to do. This is the time to perform your pre-arranged sequence. I want to see a big improvement next week.

Look at this example. Even when they make a mistake (one side kick is off-balance and too far away) they continue and look strong. The video is poor resolution, but you can see how much they have practised and how strong and accurate they look.

I expect this from you!

Katja Solovey from the Ukraine is inspiring. Watch this video. Look at her footwork. Her timing.
