With the cancellation of school today due to the bad weather, there will be no Taekwondo tonight (Thursday night). Enjoy the first storm day of the year.
Master Beaton will be doing a sparring seminar for all belts on Saturday, November 29th from 11:00 to 1:00 for $20. The seminar will last 2 hours with a free bonus hour from 1:00 to 2:00 with more advanced techniques (younger belts can leave earlier if they wish).
This is a great way to get ready for the PEI Taekwondo Provincials here in Charlottetown on December 13th.
You can hold your spot by posting to comments here or signing up at PEI Taekwondo. Please let your instructor know if you have any questions.
Greg, Andrew, Nigel and I had a great day at Maritime Mayhem II … the fact that Greg and Andrew brought their own cheering sections didn’t hurt either. Our old training partner Brad was there as well (at CF Biometrics now that he is at school in Fredericton but we will still claim him ;)
The OH Squats were the hardest part of the first workout – we all agreed it would have been nicer if they were at beginning. Everyone did great on the barbell part of the second workout. Nigel crushed out 26 box jumps at 30″ to move up the rankings.
The third workout was Jackie. I think Greg and Andrew both won their heats. I think all three of us PR’d on it. Nigel and Brad finished the horrific Jackie on Steroids (95# thrusters instead of 45# bar with C2B pull ups instead of regular pull ups) and doing well enough to both make the Rx finals.
The finals were 5:00 ascending ladder AMRAPs of T2Bs and 95/65 Snatches for Scaled & Masters and Bar Muscle Ups and 135/95 Snatches for Rx. Nigel and Brad tied 2nd for this and just missed the podium.
Incredibly proud of how everyone did. Can’t wait to have a comp day again at the Island Throwdown. Todd and Jeff opened up some more spots but I think they are almost full.
Here is some information on two upcoming tournaments in Moncton and Halifax.
Please note that there is a 1 time yearly 5$ charge for all out of province participants for New Brunswick tournaments.
