The Dorset Taekwondo Tigers had their second event of the demo season at the Littledown Family Fun Day on 31st July. As usual, it was a fantastic event put on by BH Live, the weather was fantastic and the attendance was in the thousands.
The team pitched up at about 10am to set up the performance arena in the main hall, and a stand to promote the club. The team and other club members handed out over 100 sets of British Taekwondo bags and wristbands, and even more flyers, so hopefully we will have some new potential members turning up for their free taster sessions in the coming weeks.
The team performed two demonstrations – one at noon and one later on in the afternoon, both tempting in a reasonable crowd from the beautiful weather outside.
As usual, the fantastic display of back-flips, apple-smashing, wood-breaking, tile-demolishing (and even breeze-block annihilating by Master Kjeld Smedley) captivated the crowd, and brought forward a large number of eager children (and come adults), wanting to come and have a kick.
Particular Congratulations go to Lucas and Tyler, who did fantastic in their first ever demos! Also well done to Jim for carrying on and doing the second demo despite picking up an injury in the first one, courtesy of his brother. A big well done to the whole team for once again putting on a brilliant event, hopefully bringing in some new members, and showing the public what an amazing sport Taekwondo is. As always, Master Alex Kay did a fantastic job of co-ordinating and motivating the team into pulling off a flawless performance
Thanks to Master Darren Naraine and Jemma for their help with the stand, handing out flyers and running the have-a-go sessions, and to the other club members who came along to help out.
The team is having a break over August, as many of the team members are away. They will be back training in September, so watch this space for news of future demos in the lead up to the big Littledown Fireworks event in early November!
