Black belt seminar 26 Feb12

On sunday 26 Feb 12, Ian and Tom took their Black belt candidate, Melissa Ball, to her first seminar held at Mansfield Grange,by the Btcb(British Taekwondo control board) where she practiced grading techniques, under the ever watchful eyes of Master Mckensie and Master Tranter. At the seminar, they engage the students in all aspects of what they expect to see at a grading, implementing any new techniques and adjusting some very bad habits. Here was  her chance to see how other students perform, try different ideas, find out who would be grading at the same time as herself, and train with approx 150 others. She did come away with a better idea on what is required and also, what she needs to sharpen up on. Meanwhile, Ian and Tom were getting to grips with knife attacks and some interesting locks and grabs with other black belts, who they had not met before. A good days training, so now Ian and Tom say ” COME ON MELISSA” you can do it!!!!!
