One little Taekwondo Warrior on crutches from sparring … but she will be back soon!
Katie damaged her knee when sparring in the Beccles dojang on Monday evening, but she was excellently attended to by Mrs Bedingfield, cold pack applied, then a late night follow up to A&E to check the damage. Fortunately soft tissue damage only and will mend soon.
Katie’s Mum said “These things happen when they all try so hard! She’ll mend soon enough and she’s doing her best to not let it stop her! She was looking cheeky in the photo cause it was 1am after a long wait in A&E and she was finding it very amusing trying to figure the crutches out!”
All at Beccles Taekwon-do wish her a speedy recovery.
Mondays & Thursdays 7-8.30pm
The Venue, Ringsfield Road, Beccles
No need to book, just turn up, loose clothing and bring a bottle of water!

Well proud Beccles instructors.
Mr & Mrs B.
A Big Congratulations to all the martial arts students from the Beccles Taekwondo and Bungay Taekwondo clubs who passed their Summer Belt Grading at the weekend.
The examination was held at Bungay High School on 23rd June 2019
GTUK Regional examiner Mr Steve King 6th Dan from Wellingborough, said this was an excellent grading and that there were some very promising performances especially during the sparring. He also congratulated the newest white belt Taekwondo students on their 1st belt grading and said he was very impressed with the focus and standards displayed by the young students.
All students were rewarded with a fantastic 100% pass rate!
The 3 hour examination includes demonstrations of techniques including kicks, punches and blocks, patterns (sequences of moves), sparring, self-defence, power destruction and Korean terminology for the techniques in their individual belt grade syllabuses.
The clubs are run independently but both are affiliated to the same Taekwon-do association the GTUK, and teach the original ITF style of Taekwondo. The clubs are very family orientated, with many parents training with their children. The youngest students are 5 years old and there is no upper age limit.
