Sports Connexion, Leamington Road, Ryton-On-Dunsmore, CV8 3FL

Equipment & Dress code
All students are recommended to travel in casual clothes, please wear any club or GTUK merchandise if you have it. There are facilities there for all students to change into their Doboks when they arrive. Please don’t forget your belt! All boys are required to wear groin guards, and we suggest that any long hair is tied up and pulled back off the students face. If you have your own sparring gear please ensure you have it with you. Any jewellery should be removed, or covered with plasters if it really cannot be taken out; please be advised though any jewellery worn is completely at your own risk.

Format of the day
Students will register as a club, and will be taken through to the main hall, where they can rejoin their parents/guardians, we would recommend they then get changed and then use any spare time to warm up and practice. Grand Master Oldham and the senior grades will open the tournament at aprox. 9:30. There will be a holding area where all competitors will remain until their category is ready to commence. Students will be called and will bow to the judges. In the patterns category they will be asked which pattern they will be doing, and they will then perform that pattern against their opponent, judges will signal which competitor is successful at the end. This will continue through to the final. Similarly for sparring, students will be called up, and will bow in and then students will compete to see who achieves the most points during the time.

Medals will be presented during a number of ceremonies throughout the day.

Photographs/Video
Any parents wishing to take photographs or video need to sign a form when they arrive into the building. There may also be a 3rd party professional photographer onsite, who will be taking photographs during the day. If students’ photos are taken you can purchase these to take away on the day.

Food/drinks
We recommend that you take a pack up with you and some entertainment for young children. There is however a cafeteria which sells hot and cold drinks, crisps, bacon and sausage sandwiches for you during the day should you need it.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your Instructors on the day.

We would like to wish you all the very best of luck and hope you enjoy your day, and also take this opportunity to thank you for your support!

British Open ITF Taekwondo Championships 2021

British Open ITF Taekwondo Championships 2021

A small but determined contingent of Bungay Taekwondo Club students travelled to Coventry at the weekend to compete in the first National taekwondo competition since the pandemic struck and they represented the East of England superbly. The competition is divided into 3 sections, patterns in which students have to perform set series of moves as best as possible, sparring where students compete in semi contact fighting to score the most points (3 for a kick to the head, 2 for a kick to the body and 1 for a punch to head or body) and special techniques in which students either perform the highest flying kick or break the most amount of wood.

Jayden Howgate (aged 12) fought hard to win silver medals for both sparring and patterns in the junior black belt division, whilst Evie Mortimer (aged 13) won a silver in the junior green belt to red tag patterns.  Lewis Howes (aged 16) gained a bronze in the junior white to green belt patterns.  Jonty Gillet (aged 8) competed really well and won several bouts in his huge white belt to green belt pee wee division but unfortunately missed out on the medals.

Club instructor Clinton Gillett (aged 49) won gold for patterns and silver for sparring in the Veteran senior black belt males to round off a long but successful day.   Jade Howgate helped referee throughout and said the standard of competition was excellent with everyone trying their hardest in every round.

The club is thriving at the moment but always welcomes new recruits to train in this Olympic martial art on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7pm in the Sports Hall at Bungay High School, please see the club website for details.
