On Saturday 23 rdJune, Island TaeKwon-Do Centre/HPPS/HPPA organised its second Annual TaeKwon-Do Championships at Henry Park Primary School. A total of 86 participants enrolled for the various events, comprising of students and parents.
The tournament was graced by Guest of Honour, Mrs. Dorai, Vice Principal of Henry Park Primary School.
The first event was a demonstration performed by a group of skillful black belters. The audience was very impressed by the moves demonstrated by the TaeKwon-Do exponents. The movements were so precise that it is captivated the audience attention.
The Individual and Team Pattern Competition were the first highlights of the day. We saw competitors of all ages demonstrating their TaeKwon-Do skills. Many parents were present to witness their children’s performance. Medals were presented to the winners and thereafter the Sparring Competition commenced. There were many moments of intense and fierce ‘battles’, but never was there a moment that went unnoticed by the watchful eyes of the umpires.
The winners were presented with medals in appreciation of their relentless efforts. The competition ended with a photo-taking session and presentation of Certificates of Appreciation to those who assisted in making this tournament a successful and memorable event.
