BANSTEAD TAEKWON-DO

FEBRUARY 2011 - CONTINUED ENTHUSIASM! The newcomers that arrived in January are still with us and training with great enthusiasm, which is excellent to see. We had a couple of grading successes too.

THANKS CHRIS

February 2011: We introduced some more difficult physical training during February, not just more intensive but more difficult movements too - everyone is coping well. We’ve been getting a handful of juniors ready for a competition on March 19th and some others for a grading on March 20th and we’re encouraging twice a week training and actively looking for newcomers on Monday nights.

Mr Boydell, and his wife Mrs Ngaire Boydell, 2nd Degree, are full time professional instructors and run several successful TaeKwon-Do schools.

Adults (13 years +)

My wife & I were very happy to be invited to attend his annual awards night on February 18th. It’s a real honor to be asked and we gladly packed our bags and jetted up to Aberdeen. I also had great pleasure in being asked to present awards to many of Mr Boydells’ students. I extend thanks to Mark and Ngaire Boydell for inviting us & showing us great hospitality & ensuring we had no need for cabs or hire cars. TaeKwon-Do has been a great way for me to make lasting friendships,

Classes - train twice a week for exponential gains

Hazel - big improvement in a short time. Persevered & defeated some demons.
