Results from Grandmaster Howard’s Taekwon-Do Fun Challenge

19th May 2013

Well done to all the boys and girls from the Taekwon-Do Tigers and Dragons classes who took part in our annual Fun Challenge in the Inspire Centre. The children wowed their patents and the judges with how much the have progressed since last year. Master Howard later told the children, ‘Competitions are fun, but they compare you too each other. In Taekwon-Do you need to compare yourself to yourself. Ask yourself, how have I improved since last year? That is the most important thing, because I can see that you have really improved since last year.’ ‘That is the difference between competition and martial arts’.

A special thanks to all the umpires and helpers who gave up their time to make the day a success.

Photos of the day can be found in the Gallery and the videos are on GM Howard’s YouTube channel. You can access the YouTube Channel via the link on the www.grandmasterhoward.com website.
