Nationals 2010

Have to say Mr S and myself are very proud of the team that went to the nationals. We came back with 4 golds, 2 silvers, and 2 bronze medals. Midlands also had their best result ever, helped in no small way by our club!

If you have any photo’s, send them to me and i will put them up.

Ross & Shanes last Training Night 09

Our last sparring training night was enjoyed by all, and well taken by Ross & Shane. The club managed to also raise another $200 out of their club fees to help send the boys overseas and as a thank you for the training they have received over the lasy few months. And as you can see, we also had a guest for the night with Mr Kyle Caldwell enjoying a training session with the kids, his first in a number of years.

You can see a video of Kyle winning Gold at the 2002 world champs here.

Club Demo Day at Te Puna School

Thanks Bonnie for the photo’s of our demonstration at Te Puna School on the 17/10/09

Here are some photos of the night.

Club Mufti Night

We were on the verge of seventy dollars; around the same as last time so we are on our way to getting club T-shirts. Training in mufti was certainly a wake up call for all of us but it was also very insightful. The added weight and lack of flexibility were points that were covered on the night. Practicing in civilian clothing can help you prepare for real world situations, in which most of your kicks would not be effective. This is where self defence helps a lot. If someone was to mug you on the street,  you would find it difficult to kick with bulky footwear. This being said, hand techniques or holds can be useful or good low kicks with hard shoes. Hopefully we will do this again to improve our ability to defend ourselves in civilian attire. It if quite a valuable skill as we will not be fighting in our Dobok but in standard inflexible gear that will weigh us down.

Here are some photos of the night.

Master D Club Visit 14/8/08



Our Trip to Cambridge!

Bumping along all ten of us, in the back of a huge campervan

Screaming, yelling and playing games, we all wish we had a fan

Arriving at the Do Jang we all jump out

We’re all over excited but we dare not shout

Practising patterns, stretches and line work

Not one of us being a jerk

The class ends and we all head to KFC

Lucky we don’t have to pay the fee

Yum yum we’re all done

Time to head home to mum

So thanks for the great trip we all had fun

We’re all tired and need to go to sleep like the faded sun
