Other than myself, we have yet to have any other Fusion students register for the ACT/NSW Tournament this weekend
As there are a number of students traveling interstate from Norwa, Woy Woy and Sydney this is a bad showing for us here in Fusion Canberra, especially for something taking place in Deakin. As such, I’m trying to drum up some late registrations for patterns and sparring. This is an excellent opportunity to use your in-class skills in a competition setting as well as a great place to meet other students from around the region.
The Tournament is from 9am to 5pm in Deakin (see map below), though junior students will not be expected to attend all day as the junior events are completed first (so likely 9-12 noon or so). The registration form needs to be filled in (attached and I’ll have some printed for class this arvo), and the registration fee is $60 for entry into any/all events payable to Instructor Nick either today or Sunday.
For those of you who do not want to compete, you are more than welcome to come out to have a look to see what a Taekwon-do Tournament is all about! Come in dobok if you can help with running the Tournament or not if you would just like to watch.
Mr. Bower has said there are a good number of junior students competing in patterns and sparring so there is a lot of fun to be had by Fusion students who are keen. This would be an excellent opportunity to try out that sparring gear!
I can tell you that we definitely have some Silver if not Gold Medal sparrers in class if you were just to sign up for the Tournament! And I’d say we have a Bronze or two in Patterns as well.
Additionally, Mr. Bower has advised that Senior Master Jamie Moore (8th Dan Black Belt) will be in attendance for our ACT/NSW Tournament!
If you can make it, and if your Student has had fun play-sparring at home, let’s give them a shot in the ring this weekend!
Thank you, and Taekwon!
The venue is at the JUNIOR Girls Grammer School on Grey Street (NOT Girls Grammer on Melbourne Ave). This is the same venue that was used for our last Regional Grading. A map to the venue is below (or see: http://goo.gl/maps/mKRlc ):
