Another New Black Belt for UCC Taekwon-Do Club

Please congratulate Ms Siobhan Ladden who successfully graded for her 1st Dan Black Belt with Grand Master Trevor Nicholls on Dec 2nd. Siobhan is shown here breaking two pieces of timber using a turning kick (Dollyo Chagi).

Siobhan is also the Captain of the UCC club and is continuing her training schedule and preparing for the Open Martial Arts Intervarsity that is scheduled for the end of January. The Open Martial Arts Intervarsity is open to Karate, Kung-Fu, Kickboxing, Taekwon-Do and other similar striking arts. The event is co-hosted by the UCC Karate, Kickboxing and Taekwon-Do clubs and will be run under compromise rules.

The Taekwon-Do Intervarsity is scheduled for the start of March in NUIG and promises to be a fun weekend away for all competitors and supporters.
