I am pleased to announce that I have successfully passed the Kukkiwon 1st Class Master Course in Muju, Korea. I would like to thank TCGB for the support and encouragement to undertake this training course. This accomplishment shows how far we have progressed and the recognition achieved as an association.
I am the first TCGB member to have attained this qualification and would encourage Instructors within our group to take up this challenge. The course comprised of self-defence, sparring and poomsae sessions. Lectures included the history of Taekwondo, philosophy and teaching methods.
It is important to set personal goals, within realistic timescales, so that we have a sense of achievement and also feel good about ourselves. TCGB are currently making plans for the All-In-One Seminar next month (26 October, Swanmore). Keep exercising, keep fit and I look forward to training with you at this long-standing event.
Thank you again for your support and hard work. May we continue to train hard together and enjoy the challenges and learning that Taekwondo presents.
Grandmaster Mark Biddlecombe
