During the holidays a number of our students competed in Tai Kwon Do and Jujutsu competitions.
Tai Kwon Do is a Korean martial art characterised by its emphasis on its different kicks e.g. head height, jumping and spinning and fast kicking techniques.
The Oamaru Whitestone club hosted a one day tournament which involved 14 different clubs from Invercargill in the south to Richmond in the top of the south island. The grades were based on weigh on weight, height, belt rank and age. Congratulations to our 10 students who competed at this tournament and received the following medals.
Gold – William and Warren Pardede
Silver – William Pardede, Charlie & James Bremner, Tommy McGeown and Marianne Alegre
Bronze – Warren Pardede, Luke Bremner, Melicio King, Emily Chen and Paolo Mordeno
Jujutsu is a Brazilian system of unarmed combat involving wrestling and grappling. Indeg Jones-Hogan went to Dunedin and competed in the Otago Club competition and grappled against boys and girls in the mixed 9 year grade. Congratulations to Indeg on your gold medal.
