On 21 May Trident students made the trip to Grangemouth to compete in the 1 T-UK Scottish Championships. Thanks to our new affiliation with the ITF, the event well attended by other ITF clubs and with almost 500 entrants, the competition was tough.
Trident students put in a fantastic performance and we came away with a selection of medals including 6 Golds.
The day got off to a prompt start after an inspiring speech from Mr Archer about the future of the T-UK, friendship and standards. The event was a true ‘Goodwill Event’ which enables children (and adults) to compete and develop without the fear of being harmed during sparring.
Competitions are a fantastic way of developing confidence and skill in taekwon-do and we’re always looking for competitors to represent the Academy. Anyone interested in attending future competitions should speak to Mr Miley or check out the website for details of all the upcoming events.
