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.

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

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
