Training Weekend and Summer Camp
Don’t miss the Taekwon-Do highlight of your summer; A full on Taekwon-Do weekend followed by a full week on our Taekwon-Do summer camp.
Training weekend: We are holding a training weekend on Saturday and Sunday 6th/7th August 2016. This year’s theme is ‘Taekwon-Do Competition – Raising your Game’, and will be conducted by Senior Master Robert Howard, Master Mark O’Donnell and Mr Leon McSherry.
The Saturday will focus on raising the level of your patterns to be successful at competitions. Mr McSherry is 2016 European Champion in 5th degree patterns, and SM Howard and Master O’Donnell have years of experience umpiring at European and World Championships. Between them they will help you identify what you need to do to compete to your highest level.
Day 2 (Sunday) will focus on Competition Sparring and will focus on the sparring drills, techniques and tips from the recent Mr Konstantin Yurikov seminars. This a great chance for all RITA students and instructors to raise the level of their sparring skills.
