Summer Gradings June 2015- Results

 

Congratulations to all the students who were promoted at our recent summer gradings. It was a busy month for ITF examiner Master Robert Howard as he tested students from our teen class and our Tigers and Dragons programmes. ‘I was really happy with the standard of the students’ Master Howard said. ‘It was obvious that the majority of them were really trying and had practiced a great deal at home.’ he added.

 

The gradings were held between our two venues; The Cabra Parkside Community Centre, Rathoath Road, Dublin 7, and St Joseph’s School for Deaf Boys, Navan Road, Dublin 7.

The adult and teen grading is scheduled for Saturday 27th June (10am to 12pm). Best of luck to all those who are taking their exam.

 

Congratulations to our recipients of the grading award and student of the month award.

Tigers & Dragons Instructors’ Course

This course is designed as an introduction to the RITA's Childrens development Programme also known as the Taekwon-Do Tigers and Dragons programme. It is aimed at instructors, black belts who want to teach, and adult colour belts who want to assist in the teaching of, the Tigers and Dragons classes in their school. The approved Tigers (6-8 years) and Dragons (9-11 years) programme is an alternative syllabus for young children with the aim of long term development of their flexibility, strength and Taekwon-Do techniques. This syllabus has proved very popular in the RITA schools which have adopted it and there has been a significant increase in the membership of these schools as a direct result. [Please note this new syllabus is an alternative syllabus for RITA schools who wish to avail of it. It is up to the Senior Instructor in each school whether they wish to teach the traditional syllabus or the recognised Tigers & Dragons syllabus to younger members]

Qualification: Black belt participants will receive a RITA Tigers & Dragons Instructor qualification (D Class Certificate) which will qualify them to teach the Tiger and Dragons syllabus. Adult colour belts will receive a RITA Tigers & Dragons Assistant qualification which will qualify them to assist a black belt instructor in the teaching of the Tiger and Dragons syllabus.
