Thanks to all the participants and volunteers who assisted in running
yet another successful Best of the Best inter-club competition. These
events are great learning opportunities for first-time competitors,
and re-enforce the friendship between SES Taekwondo and Tigers
Hosted at Tigers Taekwondo Macleod YMCA, our August competition saw 31
competitors in individual poomsae, 5 entries in the pairs division and
4 entries in the family/team division. The pairs and family divisions
are a great new addition to our poomsae event, and there was a
whole-of-club demonstration of Poomsae Jitae (6th Dan) by Tigers
members. Poomsae fun for everyone!
The sparring event had 45 entries and showcased a great display of
courage and commitment by all players. It was inspiring to see many
students deal with the nerves and knocks and bruises from contact
sparring, at the same time showing good Taekwondo character.
Thanks again to all who volunteered assistance on the day, and
especially to Linda and Brendan for running the BBQ!
Best of the Best August 2018
