Summer Break

This is a reminder that we will be on our traditional two week Summer break for the weeks of July 24th and August 4th.

We will be on our Summer Schedule for next week and the month of August.

See you next week.


Head Kick Seminar Tuesday

Tyler McNeill is in town and will be giving a head kick seminar this Tuesday. This will include drills to improve delivery of the kick, learning when to throw it and how not to get hit.

The seminar will run from 6:30 to 8:30 and will cost $20.

Please post if you have any questions.

June 30th Classes

No classes tonight Monday June 30th. Enjoy Canada Day … see you on Wednesday.

Please check the Summer Schedule for class times in July and August.

Summer Open

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Summer Open another great success. We had a lot of competitors from other schools giving some great matches throughout the day.

Thank you to the officials who made it go so smoothly. We were fortunate to have national and international referees Karl Dery, Guy Labatt and Martin Desjardins travel all the way from Montreal along with Jason Davidson from New Brunswick and Heather MacDonald from Nova Scotia. Our own Mandy Li and Harvey Mitchell were key in organizing the day.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make the day run smoothly.

See you all next year,

Master Ives

Congratulations to Winners at Annual Awards Banquet

It was a great night at the Association’s Annual Award Banquet.  I would like to first thank Sport PEI and ADL for their support. It was great to have Nick Murray and Mark McGuigan representing their respective organizations.

I would also like to thank the people who made it happen. During the dinner were a ton of people helping out in the kitchen and serving the food which was greatly appreciated. I would like to recognize Tom Campbell who MC’d and did a ton of work getting it organized (as well as his daughter Lily, who helped set up and decorate) as well as Mandy Li who prepared a lot of the food in advance (probably more than we will ever now). Thank so much to both of you.

It was a great night made even more special for everyone by having Grand Master Lee in attendance. We had a lot of awards given out from the individual schools as well as the Chong Lee Cup from the Association and the Sport PEI awards.

The winners of the PEI Taekwondo school awards were:

  • Most Improved: Claudia McCardle
  • Academic Standing: Ronan Lantz
  • Fairplay Award: Kaleb Timmons

The Chong Lee Cup Award recognizes outstanding effort at the Provincial Taekwondo Tournament. This year the winners were:

  • Jr. Female: Ashlyn Carpenter
  • Jr. Male: Isaac McCardle
  • Sr. Female: Tammy Turner

Last but not least the Sport PEI Awards recognize those for their contributions throughout the year.

  • Jr. Male: Cole Scantlebury
  • Sr. Female: Tammy Turner
  • Sr. Male: Mark Llewellyn
