Since 2008, our club championships which are run 3 times a year, have been an integral part ofour training program in sparring and poomsae.
Sparring is one of the best training exercise in the Taekwondo program. It sharpens and develops many fighting attributes while completely conditioning your body for sport combat fighting as well as self defense. More importantly, Taekwondo sparring teaches you the importance of timing and judgment of distance in relation to your offensive and defensive techniques. It also conditions your body to withstand the impact of blows and kicks. It is a training methodology used to develop combative attributes and rhythm. No amount of static training can prepare you in a real life situation without sparring / combat training and experience. Club championships are run using Lajust Electronic Chestguards to train club members on right techniques and power, in a controlled friendly combat environment. Grandmaster No also identifies potential students to join Tiger Team at each club championships.
Poomsae is the most underestimated part of Taekwondo training. Yet it is the most important as it is the foundation for sparring and self defence skills. Performing in front of an audience in poomsae competitions also improves your confidence while putting your techniques to the test.
