Congratulations to Brona Kelly and David Cleary who were promoted to 9th kup by examiner Senior Master Phelan 8th degree. SM Phelan said that he was very happy with their performance and gave both students feedback on how to improve their techniques. The two new yellow tips will now learn the first Taekwon-Do pattern, Chon Ji.

 

Congratulations to Mr Adam Fox of Grandmaster Howard’s Taekwon-Do School who won a silver medal in power breaking at the European Taekwon-Do Championships in Bled, Slovenia. Mr Fox, who is well known for his breaking ability, was narrowly beaten to the gold by Ioannis Tersenidis of Greece. This is the second silver medal Mr Fox has won in this event, as he also won silver the Euros in Spain in 2000.

Mr Leon McSherry also competed at Europeans Championships in Slovenia in the 4th degree patterns section. Despite performing two excellent patterns he was unfortunate to be beaten in the first round by the eventual gold medallist, Evgeny Piksaev, from Russia.

Master Howard also attended the event as an international umpire and was centre referee in patterns, sparring and power breaking. 

Next year’s Euros are planned for Minsk, Belarus in April/May 2014
