There have been a few requests for different times if possible (while I have attempted to accommodate all requests I may have missed a couple so this may shift a little over the next day).
Please let me know if this is the case or you have any questions, comments or concerns.
Thank you and see you on Saturday.
With the New Year fast approaching we are going to launch a KickStart 2015 campaign to expose more people to our great Taekwondo community. The web page is http://www.peitaekwondo.com/kickstart2015.
It will be a discounted three month rate for new people and will be limited to 10 people in each of the classes. If you refer someone who signs up, you get an awesome PEI Taekwondo toque (while supplies last). The member who refers the most people to sign up will get three months membership free.
This is a great way to introduce a friend or family member to Taekwondo so please share away.
Thank you in advance,
PEI Taekwondo Toques available for $15 … get them while they last. Makes a great gift for the holidays.
Registration for our Provincial Taekwondo tournament on December 13th is now open. You must register by December 9th.
You can register online at: http://www.tournamenttrackr.com/registrations/new?tournament_id=7&user_id=22
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.
NB Provincials – November 22nd
Black Belt Canada – December 6th
Please let your instructor know if you have any questions or are interested in attending.
This Saturday (November 8th) there will be an Intro to Sparring seminar from 2:30 to 4:00 led by National competitor Hannah Ives.
The cost is $10 and will be a great opportunity for any students new to Taekwondo or for students who have been doing Taekwondo for a while and want to build their comfort level with sparring.
There are 15 spots available … spots are going quickly so register before it fills up by commenting below or signing up at PEI Taekwondo.
