The Pee Wee Tournament is now a couple of weeks away. Make sure you register now so that we can give you your club badge to sew onto your dobok in time!
We've updated our article on how to get the most out of the Pee Wee Tournament:
Seven Ways to Maximise Your Pee Wee Tournament Experience
One context you will be familiar with for Taekwon-Do is gradings. Another is tournaments. The Pee Wee Tournament Series is for kids aged 12 and under and a great "first tournament" for kids new to tournaments. These events are extremely well run and held at Valley Rd School, Pukekohe.
Here are some tips to make the most out of your experience!

Visitors at 6.30pm Tuesday/Thursday and Special Guest
For the next month we will have Remuera Taekwon-Do Club visiting our Tuesday andThursday 6.30pm classes (as their own venue is unavailable). Please treat our visitors with the utmost courtesy and give them a warm Warrior welcome.
We also have a special guest this Thursday evening - Master Daher, 8th degree black belt from Australia will be taking the 6.30pm class. We are looking forward to what he has to share with us! All members who usually attend 5.30pm or 6.30pm classes are invited to come on Thursday to train with Master Daher.
Under 18s Tournament
A team of 10 young Warriors headed to Pukekohe on Saturday to compete in the Under 18s Tournament. All of the kids did extremely well and can be really proud of themselves for stepping out of their comfort zone and giving it their best shot. The official results are yet to be posted on ITKD but we have heard that Warrior Taekwon-Do came 4th in the medals table.
Have a great training week!
