On 15th December 2020, Amity Taekwon-Do hosted a coloured belt grading and black belt assessment evening conducted by UTA Chairman Master G Horan 7th Degree at our Northampton Taekwon-Do Dojang in Walgrave.
After months of continued training through difficult times, including many lessons online via Zoom, 10 Coloured Belts and 5 Black Belts took their gradings/assessments. All students passed with tremendous merit, as noted by Master Horan at the end of the grading.
After the conclusion of the grading and assessments, we were treated to a lesson by Master Horan. We covered how our patterns could be applied with a more self-defence mind set by focusing on the purpose and application of each movement. Master Horan also discussed the differences between Jumping, Flying and Mid-Air Strikes along with various other technical corrections to our Taekwon-Do movements.
Amity Taekwon-Do would like to congratulate each student who graded or took their assessment and say thank you to Master Horan for his time in coming to Northampton especially for this grading.
Well done everyone!
