4 Gold 2 Silver and 1 Bronze medals for the Surrey team at the Welsh Open championship 2011
Taekwondo is a complete martial art and the competitions include several disciplines such as Patterns, Sparring, Special Techniques and Power-test. During patterns the competitors will perform a series of movements and techniques in a pre-defined format, rhythm and intensity, to show their ability. The Sparring competition consists of scoring points through full-contact hand and foot kicks to different parts of the opponent’s body in a controlled form of combat. Special techniques demonstrate extreme flexibilities in different forms of jumping kicks, while the power-test consists of breaking several layers of planks with hands and feet.
Four members of the Surrey Taekwon-Do School travelled to Cardiff to join the tournament in their categories …. With tremendous success!
the Surrey team who brought home 4 gold 2 silver and 1 bronze
medals! The full results are:
Bella is only 10 years old and just got her Blue Belt grading, while Nina with her 9 years is one of the youngest members from the School to attend tournaments. Both did it very well so far and are very dedicated to Taekwondo.
Taekwondo teaches fitness, stretching, offensive and defensive techniques, semi-contact and full-contact sparring, breaking of boards and bricks, and a variety of patterns. The tenets of Taekwondo are Courtesy - Integrity - Perseverance – Self Control and Indomitable Spirit. Those principles are also undeniable values which help the students in their day-to-day life.

Surrey Taekwon-Do Instructor Wins World Power Title!
Surrey's own Richard Hamilton has won the ITF Veteran's World Power Gold Medal in Belarus last week at the ITF World Championships.
The England team travelled to Minsk last week to attend the International Taekwon-Do Federation Junior and Veteran World Championships. There were over 50 countries in attendance including competitors from Japan, Australia, Canada, Italy, Czech Republic, Russia, Korea, and many other countries.
The England Team boasted 2 World
Champions from Surrey. James Gridley won the World Sparring
title for the under 18 year olds, and Richard Hamilton won the
World Power title in the veterans class.
Richard had over 30 people to compete with in the breaking. Numerous competitors over estimated their capabilities on brand new white plastic boards, but Richard gambled conservatively and produced the breaks to qualify with the top 10 competitors. A final break off reduced the field to 2 Greenland competitors and Richard and a draw was made as to the technique to be used for the world title. The back kick was drawn and Richard was the only competitor to break all of the boards so the title comes home to England, and Surrey!!!
