New Club Opening!

Tong-Il Taekwon-Do is growing, just in time for our Mid Year Intake! July 22nd will see the Club expand with the New Belconnen Branch opening. Congratulations to 3rd Degree Regional Instructors Mr John Sutherland and Mr Steve Wood who will take up this appointment and head the new Dojang. They're already causing quite a ruckus and enquiries have been flowing thick and fast so it appears the Belconnen Branch is already assured it's success. In conjunction with Fusion Martial Arts Academy, we're now able to train at any of 4 locations - Barton, Belconnen, Macquarie and Holder. Look to the website at http://tong-iltkd.com.au/index.php/training for further information. As stated on the site, times for the New Belconnen Club are 6:00pm to 7:00pm Tuesdays and Thursdays, Hope to see you there!

Promotions and Appointments!

This has been some time coming and my apologies but I wanted to make mention and congratulate Mr Darren Sexton and Kim De Poorter on their promotion to First Degree and of course Mr John Sutherland and Steve Wood for their sucessful testing to 3rd Degree.

With the Belconnen Branch opening, some internal restructuring has come about. Mr Paul Bailey and Darren Sexton are appointed as Instructors for the Barton Dojang to help cover for when I'm unable to make it due to work. Mr John Sutherland and Steve Wood are founders of the new Belconnen Dojang and their primary appointment will be in looking after this Branch. I hope you'll all attend in support whenever you're able as I will in helping the Branch get up and running.

Thanks and Taekwon!
Sabum Scott Bower.

A Personal note, I'd like to congratulate both Mrs Catherine McMaster and Mr Paul Bailey on an Outstanding 3rd Degree Testing on February 1st, Very impressive breaks and a proud moment for us, completing my first ever Dan testing as head of the Examiner's Panel. My appreciation to All who attended today, in particular, Mr Danny Perez, Miss Amanda Morrison and Mr Matt Wood for their Examination panel Duties along with Mr Carlo Giampietro and members for travelling to support.

Thanks and Taekwon!

Hello All!

This is the final week before we break for 2013. Although most of you know, this is your official notice and invite for Members, Friends and Family to the Tong-Il Taekwon-Do Breakup Barbeque at Black Mountain Peninsula from 17:30 to 20:30 this Wednesday 18th, 2013. We'll be hosting Nibblies (Chips and Softdrink) and all you have to bring will be your meat of choice or otherwise, something substantial to meal on. Given there will likely be children coming, we'll be looking to get a cooking area near the Playgrounds. I hope to see you there!

As for class this week, we will be training on Friday night, 20th of December and this is the last training for 2013. We'll be back on deck and into it again on the 6th of January, 2014. For those I won't see Wednesday or Friday, I wish you and your family Season Greetings and all the Best for 2014. I look forward to seeing everyone back into Training in the New Year and hope we all enjoy just as many successes next year as we did this one.


Thanks and Taekwon!

Hello All,

This is a reminder about upcoming Gradings for December 6th. Please have your Student Manuals and Fees into your Instructor by or on the day of Gradings, if Direct Deposit isn't done by Wednesday the 4th, you can hand your fees in with your Student Manual on the day. Important, Please Don't Forget Your Student Manuals! Those looking to sit for Dan Ranks next year will have the opportunity to go through some paces after the Gup Testing at Telopea Park, please make the time to be there. There will also be an Informal Black Belt Dinner following where details for the 2014 Calendar will be finalised where some interesting developments will be unleashed. At this point, there's three International Rank Testings and all up, we're now into double figures of Dan Applicants testing under GM Hwang and I'm still to confirm and release his Schedule for his Australian Visit!

For all applicants testing next Friday, I'd wish you luck but I don't believe in luck for this event. I wholly believe you've all trained hard and will know everything required already, luck has nothing to do with it.

Also, if anyone requires a new and/or special-order Dobok, I'll be doing a reorder tomorrow along with Belts in the new style for the expected influx of students... (sic) If you'd like to request a new Dobok or Belt, you have less than 16 hours to do so.

Thanks and Taekwon!
