Toyota Tops British GTUK Taekwondo Triumphs

There were some great results from Bungay Taekwondo students at the weekend when 12 competitors travelled 160 miles to Coventry in order to compete in this year’s British GTUK Championships.

Toyota Smith

Toyota Smith achieved a fantastic gold in the sparring and silver in the patterns in her first ever tournament, fighting in the adult ladies 10-7th kup category, whilst Jade Howgate gained two silver medals in the adult ladies 3-1st kup section.  Neil Genn-Bromley fought hard to achieve a bronze in the adult male 10-7th kup competition.

Bungay High school Year 10 student Kelsie Dyer surpassed her own expectations to win silver for patterns and bronze for sparring in the junior girls 6-4th kup category and Liam Everett fought extremely hard for his silver in the junior male 3-1st kup division.  His brother Christian Everett performed superbly in the junior black belt patterns to get his 1st silver medal as a black belt and then followed this up with an even greater award in the tag team challenge.

bungay taekwondo

Christian fought alongside fellow Bungay High School students, Jacob Burden and Adam Fuller in the hugely competitive black belt tag team sparring event which is a truly amazing spectacle to watch and they astonished themselves by finishing as silver medallists, although, it was incredibly hard fought and Jacob ended up getting checked out at hospital for a suspected broken arm, fortunately this turned out to be a badly buckled radius.

Isaac Slater was truly unlucky to lose a bronze medal match on a technicality after fighting his way through several tough rounds in the pee wee 3-1st kup cohort, whilst Colby Aldrich and Jayden Howgate competed well but missed out on the medals.

The club can now focus on getting ready for the last grading of the year satisfied with some great performances in this year’s competition circuit.  It is still possible to start training with Clinton Gillett who is a 5th Degree international instructor, world silver medallist from 2000 and current UITF veteran champion.

The club trains at Bungay High School on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7pm and welcomes students of all abilities from the age of 6 to 60 and beyond please contact the school on 01986 892140 for further details or pop along for a free taster lesson.

Eastern GTUK Interclub Tournament 2017

The Eastern Area Inter-Club tournament took place in Wellingborough this year and Bungay Taekwondo Club with support from Beccles Taekwondo Club battled to a very creditable 3rd place in the region with some great individual performances which was excellent considering the competition was so fierce.

24 medals in total were achieved by 18 fighters in all age groups, pee wees (under 12) included silver for Jayden Howgate in his patterns division and silver for Jack Sutton in his sparring division.

Juniors (13-17) achieved a great haul of medals with Tegan Brown’s and Christian Everett’s golds for patterns and silvers for sparring being a real highlight, whilst Ewan Lutz gained gold for sparring and bronze for patterns, James Thurston won silver for patterns and bronze for sparring.  Robin De-Berniere-Smart did really well to win silver for sparring and bronze for patterns in his first ever competition whilst Liam Everett won bronze for sparring.

Adults (18-48!) included a great double gold for Jade Howgate in sparring and patterns, gold for Barbara Mazza (Beccles) in the patterns and silver in the sparring and a superb gold for Club Assistant Instructor Martin Sloan in the black belt patterns. Jack Handley achieved a fantastic gold in the black belt sparring and bronze for patterns whilst Jason Drake (Beccles) gained silver for black belt patterns and bronze for sparring.  Chloe Florido achieved silver for patterns and sparring in her division.

Several other competitors competed and supported superbly with Isaac Slater battling to 4th place in the pee wee sparring, whilst Findley Mutti, Lewis Flatt and Oliver Lamb all showed true taekwondo spirit but missed out on medals.  Steve King The area 6th degree and senior said “Bungay did really well once again and their sense of team spirit and camaraderie is excellent, I am sure they will win the regions one day soon!”

Now is a great time to try out this rewarding Olympic martial art so if you want to get fit for the spring come along to Bungay High School on Tuesday or Thursday evenings from 7pm or contact Clinton Gillett on 01986 892140 for further details. The youngest students in the club are 5 years old and there is no upper age limit, check us out on www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk or for those in Beccles www.beccles-taekwondo.co.uk

Bungay Taekwondo UITF British Open Medallists 2015

UITF British medallists 2015

Well done to all the Bungay Taekwondo competitors who took part in last weekends UITF British Open.

British Open Taekwondo Success.

Twenty competitors from Bungay and Beccles Taekwondo clubs travelled to the heart of England in order to compete in this year’s British Open Taekwondo championships at the weekend and despite huge categories and some very heavy contact they came away with a stunning 21 medals!

Gordon Perkis and Kerry Norfolk achieved fantastic double gold medals for sparring and patterns whilst Amanda Linford achieved gold for patterns and silver for sparring, Lucy Thurbon fought superbly for her gold in sparring and bronze in patterns.

Jason Drake (from Beccles Club), and Jade Howgate achieved double silver medals in their divisions.

Tegan Brown performed superbly in order to be awarded silver for sparring and bronze for patterns, whilst Amber Swanston, Liam Everett and Jacob Burden fought really hard for their bronze medals. Colby Aldrich was really unlucky to come 4th in his category after many rounds of hard competition.

The event culminated in Club instructor Clinton Gillett, fighting assistant instructor Martin Sloan in the final of the Veteran middle weight Black belt male sparring with Clinton winning on points.

Martin therefore gained silver for sparring and bronze for patterns with Clinton getting the gold for sparring and a bronze for patterns in the international category.

Thomas Adams, Jake Swanston, Bailey Aldrich, Christian Everett, Jayden Howgate, Ben Burden and Harry Norfolk were fabulous competitors but missed out on the medals in this instance.

The clubs are gearing up for the summer grading in June but there is still an opportunity to get started in this dynamic sport and details can be found on the clubs websites.

Stunning Medals!

Bungay-TKD-GTUK-Championships-March-2015

Fourteen students from Bungay and Beccles Taekwondo Clubs travelled 160 miles to Coventry at the weekend to compete in this year’s GTUK National Championships and came away with a medal haul to be proud of.

Over 800 students from all over the UK gathered at the Sky Blues Connection to compete against one another in sparring, patterns and destruction following on from regional tournaments held earlier in the year.

Jed Baddour (aged 8) came second in the Pee-wee special destruction technique whilst Jadyn Howgate (aged 6) got through a couple of rounds in his sparring category before being defeated by the eventual winner so they were both unlucky to leave without medals.

Other Bungay students were more fortunate with Jade Howgate (aged 31) winning bronze for sparring and patterns in her first ever competition, whilst Taylor Perkins, Lucy Thurbon (both aged 13) and Liam Everett (aged 14) won double silvers in their categories. Tegan Brown won an excellent gold for her superb patterns and a well-deserved bronze for her sparring. Christian Everett (aged 11) and Club instructor Clinton Gillett (aged 43) topped the tables with both winning gold medals for sparring and patterns in their categories.

Beccles-TKD-GTUK-Championships-March-2015

Beccles student Gary Wheeler was a super sport but narrowly missed out on a medal whilst his team mate Jason Drake gained a bronze for sparring. Barbara Mazza achieved great golds for patterns and destruction alongside silver for sparring.

The final medal haul was 18 medals won which is testament to the high quality of taekwondo in the area. If you want to come along and try this superb martial art for competition or just to get fit or learn self-defence then please check out the club websites www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk or www.beccles-Taekwondo.co.uk we always welcome everyone in this family friendly sport.

Bungay and Beccles Taekwondo competitors before the competition

Congratulations to Bungay Taekwondo students who attended the Northamptonshire Inter Club Tournament on 15th Feb 2015

A much smaller contingent of Bungay and Beccles Taekwondo students than usual travelled the 100 miles to Northampton in order to compete in this year’s inter-club competition.  Many of the usual stalwarts were on holiday or unavailable due to prior commitments but those that did attend achieved great success.

From Bungay High School Christian Everett (year 7) and Liam Everett (year 9) represented the club superbly with Liam getting 2 silver medals for sparring and patterns in his age and belt category whilst his brother Christian gained bronze for patterns and brilliant gold for sparring in his division.  He was also praised by all the black belts for his level of technical ability and self-control whilst fighting some slightly smaller boys in his category.  Mr Baddour’s son Jed, who trains in the Wednesday after school club also did really well to win gold for patterns and bronze for sparring in the Pee-wees (under 12s).

From Beccles Barbara Mazza won silver for sparring and a great gold for patterns with the same results for Jason Drake whilst Gary Wheeler got silver for patterns and a fabulous gold for all coloured belt veterans destruction. Bella Gibson competed well but just missed out on a medal place.

Mr Gillett finished of the medal haul by winning gold in sparring and silver for patterns in the Veteran black belt males.  With all the medals won we came 4th in the area, only beaten by much bigger towns such as Wellingborough and Northampton which was a great if somewhat surprising achievement with our diminished team!

Students are getting ready for the British GTUK Championships at the moment but it is still possible to come along and train, just contact the clubs for further details www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk or www.beccles-taekwondo.co.uk

BIG WELL DONE to all who competed at the Wellingborough Interclub Tournament on Sunday 23rd Feb 2014.

beccles-&-bungay-taekwondo-interclub-2014-web-1

Bungay and Beccles represented the East and came 3rd overall in a competition that had 9 other clubs taking part.

East Anglia Interclub Success

Fifteen students of all ages travelled to Wellingborough in Northamptonshire to compete in this year’s East Anglia Interclub tournament and came away with a superb haul of 18 medals, 3 trophies and a creditable 3rd place.  The students from Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo clubs had the furthest to travel and the longest day but fought against stiff opposition in order to reach the podium.

Gold medals were won by Lucy Thurbon (aged 12) and Amanda Burden (who also won a silver for patterns and the best adult female competitor award), Lucy also gained a bronze for her sparring after bravely fighting on with a split lip.  Adam Fuller (aged 11) won silver for patterns and bronze for sparring whilst his brother Lewis (aged 15) won silver for patterns.  Jacob Burden gained silver for patterns and bronze for sparring whilst his brother Ben narrowly missed out on a medal in a huge Peewee division.  Danny Hammond won silver for sparring, Karl Swanston won silver for patterns and bronze for sparring whilst also gaining the best adult male competitor award, unfortunately his son Jake finished 4th in both sparring and patterns after coming up against larger competitors and narrow decisions. Liam Howes  (aged 12) fought bravely to win a silver for sparring in his 1st ever competition.  Jason Drake achieved a superb silver for sparring in an all coloured belts adult category in which he was the lowest grade whilst also getting bronze for patterns.  Henry Howe (aged 15) was rewarded for his artistic patterns with a great silver medal, and battled hard to win a bronze for his sparring, this also earned him the award for best junior male competitor of the day.

In the black belt section Jenna Akerman (aged 17) won bronze for patterns and Saskia Baylis (also 17) got bronze for sparring in the tough adult female category which rounded off a very busy day.

Clinton Gillett the area international instructor said “all competitors from the region did themselves proud as just having the guts and determination to stand up in competition and fight opponents as well as nerves deserves respect and admiration, only 10% of club members nationally compete so just taking part is a credit to themselves”.

Students are now gearing up for the British Championships and the next grading but there is always room for new beginners so if you want to come along to either Bungay or Beccles club you will be made very welcome in our family friendly classes and you can find details on our websites www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk or www.beccles-taekwondo.co.uk
