Another New Belt Gained

Oliver with Instructor Richard.

Hi everyone..Grandson Oliver gained another belt in Tae Kwon Do on Sunday, June 04. This one was the Blue Stripe. He has a terrific instructor, Richard Dobbs and you can see the pair of them above.

Many young people went through various tests for different belt levels. Unfortunately because I got my wires crossed (easy for Grandpa to do these days!) I only got to the activities in time to see Oliver and the others presented with their new belts. However, the main thing is the kids did so well and obviously had such a good time.

Below you can see a short video of Oliver involved in one of the requirements in gaining the new belt…board breaking.

‘Bye for now and God bless.

Moving Up, Slowly But Surely.

Last weekend, Tim, Andi, Ben and I went to support and watch Oliver participate in his green stripe belt test in Taekwondo. The test involved the demonstration of kicking ability, defence and attack moves and poomsae, which you might remember from  a previous post. It’s the demonstration of a sequence of movements which involve speed, grace and power.

We had a great time. Oliver did too once the butterflies had settled.  Below are a video I made of the occasion and a small slideshow.

Best wishes to all. ‘Bye for now and God bless.
