We had the first recording session for our catalog of videos this morning at the dojang. We recorded members performing all of the colour belt and first degree patterns. The standard was very high. We hope to have the videos uploaded to our members page in the coming days. A big thanks to everyone who performed a pattern and a special thanks to Denise Murphy for recording them.
All those Black belt and Black belt program members who intend to grade with GM Kim in June will need to complete an assessment on Monday the 12th of May.
Any questions, contact Master McSweeney firstname.lastname@example.org
J H Kim Taekwon-do Institute has lots of success at the Open PUMA world Championships in the UK
The J H Kim TaeKwon-Do Institute took a team of 14 people plus coaches and a team manager to the PUMA World Championships on the weekend of the 7th 8th and 9th of March 2014.
The team consisted of:
Logan Mills, Alex Healy, Adam Gray, Ryan McSweeney, Rebecca Crawford, May Webber, Lilias Healy, Andrew Green, Dylan McSweeney, Andrew Quinlan, Scott Mills, Mark Healy, Fiona Barrett Burke and Faye Cooney.
We won 14 medals in total; 3 gold, 4 silver and 7 bronze. The team were fantastic ambassadors for the Country, the Institute, but most of all to themselves and their families.
The team was managed by Mr Joe Green and coached by Mr Kevin O' Donovan, both of whom did a great job. It goes without saying that every student gave tremendous support when a fellow team-mate was in the middle of battle. This just showed the togetherness which has emerged within the institute.
A very special mention must go to Philip Gray who travelled to support the team and did trojan work with the gear and minding anything that we lost!!!.
On behalf of the J H Kim Institute I want to say that it was a pleasure to see you all do so well and to see you all earn respect form other competitors and students. I can say that it a very successful event for the Institute. I think we have made a lot of contacts for the future.
