T-UK Central Area Seminar - 23/6/2017

On Sunday 11th June T-UK held the first Area Seminar of the year at The Stratford upon Avon High School.
Students and Instructors from all of the Central Clubs got together for a great day of Taekwon-Do.
Firstly in the morning it was the coloured belts who started and after a brief welcome from T-UK Chief Instructor, Mr Archer, things got underway.



The Seminar was conducted by T-UK senior Instructors Mr Ian Ridley VI, Mr Andy Crisp, V & Mr Martin Noddings V.
After a good warm up the group was split into 3 to be taught and coached through their patterns.
This then moved on to kicking techniques and then free sparring.

A lot of areas were also covered by the Instructors but as always the time ticked away very quickly.
After the coloured belts finished some great feedback was received and a lot of fun clearly had by all !

The Black Belts started the afternoon off with a big warm up and some great stretching methods before being split into their 3 groups for their patterns. Again a lot of questions were answered and some happy faces finished this part of the day.
A nice surprise then happened for the students with the arrival of ITFE Head Coach Mr Johann De Silva !!
He then took the whole group through some fancy sparring footwork drills before putting them all into practise.
It was clear that a good many Instructors present found these drills completely new, and so again , a lot of fun and valuable information was passed on by Mr De Silva.
At the end of the day great feedback and huge thanks were given out.
T-UK would like to say a huge congratulations to all who turned out, big thanks to Mr Ian Ridley, Mr Andy Crisp & Mr Martin Noddings, and special Thanks to Mr Johann De Silva.
A great job done by all !!
