Black Belt Tests – SMASHING time had by all

25th March 2018 will be firmly in the memory of the Tomkins family. Stephen, Gen and Kit smashed their way to 1st Dan, Connor smashed his way to second Dan.

Other successful candidates included Emily also going for first Dan, Dave for 2nd Dan and Sharon for 5th Dan (Master).

The candidates had to perform 4 pattterns / poomsae, Step sparring, advanced kicking, several round of sparring, and smashing their way through several inches of wood in the power test!

Examiner, Master Naraine said “It is great to see a whole family achieve their Black belts with Dorset Taekwondo. We have had a few parents and children achieve black belts together over the last 30 years, but never a Mum, Dad and three children. They have been training for approximately 5 years, usually 3 classes a week. they were well prepared, and apart from a few nerves I hope they almost enjoyed the test.”
