The year started with much excitement as members prepared for the performance for the Secondary One Orientation programme to recruit new members. The coach had to identify suitable students for the various events. On the day itself, our students put up a very impressive performance as they broke the wooden planks with their ‘flying’ kicks. The effort put in by our members was again well rewarded as we successfully managed to recruit new members.
In Term One, students trained intensively in preparation for the 2016 National Schools Taekwondo Championships. Members gave their best during the competition and we managed to clinch two Bronze team awards, one Silver team award and one Bronze individual award, won by Lim Ee Jer. As for members who did not win any medals, they gained valuable experience and are now more aware of the standards they have to strive to achieve.
The 2016 Whampoa Community Club Taekwondo Championships was another platform for members to compete and 1 gold team award, 2 silver team awards and 7 bronze team awards were won. This year, the teams managed to achieve the Overall Youth second runner-up and overall first runner-up awards. Many of our Secondary One members competed and did well even though it was their first time competing.
The Taekwondo CCA will continue to strive for excellence and bring out the best in each member in 2017!
