Taekwondo Skills and Upgrading Course

12th July 2021

Back into training - Taekwondo

After a gap of two years the Army Taekwondo group managed to organise an event on 21 to 25th June 2021 at Aldershot Garrison Sports centre.

Under National Governing Body (British Taekwondo) and International Governing Body (KUKIWON) a course syllabus for upgrading was designed and delivered. Among potential 13 individuals across the board 10 were eligible to upgrade. 6th Dan Master John Harrison trained and examined us throughout the event.

I managed to pass the requirements to move from third to fourth Dan and I feel proud to have done so. The President of Army Martial Arts Association, Brigadier Millar and Major Stephen Gibbon (lead for Army Taekwondo activity) congratulated the individuals who took part in the event.
