Double Black Belt Success

Double Black Belt Success Bungay Taekwondo Club

Double Black Belt Success

After a gruelling examination held in Coventry over the weekend there are 2 new black belts at Bungay Taekwondo Club which trains at the High School. Colby Aldrich aged 12 and Lewis Flatt aged 10  performed superbly in front of Grand Master Oldham (9th Dan) and Master Auciello (7th Dan) as well as various other senior grades in order to be awarded their coveted black belt.

Colby and Lewis had to perform patterns, demonstrate techniques, perform free sparring and set sparring techniques, answer theory questions and submit a written thesis. The boys have been training twice a week at Bungay High School for nearly 4 years in order to develop their confidence, strength, flexibility and stamina before taking this examination.

These 2 students passing takes the black belt tally at the club to 51 since it opened in 2003 and Clinton Gillett (5th Dan) said, “I really think these guys deserved to get their dan grading as they have shown great determination and dedication whilst also being humble and respectful students”.

Congratulations also go to Jayden Howgate (aged 10) who gained his 1st Star after having to do his pattern on his own in front of the Grandmaster as he was the only Pee Wee doing a star grade!  Jack Handley also achieved his 1.5 degree on the way to second dan.

Bungay & Beccles Taekwondo clubs held their last belt grading of the year 2018

Bungay and Beccles Taekwondo clubs have very active student memberships with well over a 100 members between them and 40 students successfully completed their last grading of 2018.

They were put through their paces by Mr Gillett 5th Dan, and Mr King 6th Dan the GTUK association Examiner from Wellingborough. All students demonstrated great enthusiasm and endurance during the 4 hour grading of techniques, patterns, self-defence, sparring and destruction, they were also tested on their knowledge of Korean terminology.

Mr King said ‘Standards were excellent and they were again a credit to the region and their instructors, all students worked really hard, and are being awarded a 100% pass rate’.

The grading was then followed by an end of year party and presentation evening of new belts and student awards. Students and their families enjoyed a superb buffet of savouries and cakes.

If you would like to join a club then now is a perfect time to start getting fit following on from the excesses of Christmas. The sport of Taekwondo is an excellent and fun way of losing weight, gaining fitness and suppleness as well as confidence alongside real self-defence capabilities.

Both local clubs are family orientated with many parents training alongside their children in order to gain new skills and a sense of wellbeing. Ages 5 and up!
