We went to this competition with a small team of 5 competitors, 2 coaches and 1 official. It was the first competition of the year for most of the team so we had low expectations on winning medals. I am very happy to say that I was very happy with the results on the day. The competition was very strong and the categories were a good size. To reach the medal rounds you had to win at least to rounds. Here are the team members and results:
Welcome to the Trident Squad 2014 Blog. I am going to update all activities of the Trident Squad during 2014 so anybody who is interested can see the results of all our competitions that we enter.

Any age is invited to join the squad if you are disciplined and would like to compete in competitions. The grade is also open although I would recommend that you had been training for a year with us so that you can understand the basic kicks and movements of Taekwon-Do.
I have been very slow in getting this information out to you and so if anyone would like to go to the PUMA World Open (anyone can go) we need to act fast. All the information is below. If you want to go please follow these steps:

I would like to congratulate all the competitors that took part in the Trident Black Belt League. The competition was a success in that it brought students who would not have normally competed at this level together. I would like to thank all the officials who gave up their time to help me run this event. As always without you we could not do these events.

Izzy and Jeff Brider joined 750 competitors and over 80 officials to
take part in the annual Open Dutch tournament hosted by Master Willy Van der

Trident Sweep the Board at T-UK English Championships
The inaugural T-UK English Championships took place on Saturday 19 November at Stratford-on-Avon and the Trident Group of clubs was represented by a large contingent of competitors. It was pleasing to see a new batch of students who were competing in their first national competition.
After a short address by Mr John Archer (VI) proceedings commenced and competitors and judges alike were kept busy on the seven squares that had been set up.
ITF World Championships 2013
The ITF World Championships were held in Benidorm, Spain in October. Trident Academy student Izzy Brider was picked to represent England at this event and I was very pleased to here that she won a bronze medal in the individual sparring. This is a great achievement and shows how far the Trident Group has come with results like this.
James Miley 5th Degree
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.
