Master coming to teach classes

WE have an exciting month coming up at Bai Rui Taekwon-Do.

We have our testing and seminar held on March 24-25 at the Hervey Bay Senior Citizens Club, 28 Totness St, Torquay.

The students have worked very hard to get ready for this, particularly during the intense heat we've experienced over the past month.

There is extra squad training for the students who are training for the National Bai Rui Taekwon-Do Tournament in April and the World Cup in Sydney.

Squad focusses not only on building fitness and stamina, but it gives students an extra focus on sparring and pattern work, which is extremely beneficial in personal development and tournament training.

Next month will bring us lots of excitement with the upcoming tournament in Brisbane.

During the two day event, students will participate in special events, breaking, sparring and patterns.

I wonder how many medals we'll bring home this time?

Another huge event this month for Bai Rui is the special Master Classes. The classes will be held on March 15, from 5-7pm, at the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre, 22 Charles St, Pialba.

Master Donal Byrne, who is a 7th Degree Black Belt / Master in ITF Taekwon-Do, will be coming to Hervey Bay to teach the classes.

It's a rare opportunity to be taught Taekwon-Do first-hand by a Master and we very much look forward to hosting Master Byrne.

We hope to share some images of those amazing classes in the next column.

As for the rest of the classes, we will continue to focus on learning new promotional patterns, more kicks, more self-defence and more sparring.
