North West Area Blackbelt Traning
07 Nov 2006
The next Area Blackbelt Training will be on:

Saturday 25th November

The venue will be:

Pensby Sports Complex
Pensby Boys School
Irby Road
CH61 6XN

Directions can be found here

The session will cost 5.

As this is our final Area training session of the Year and many of us may be eligible for Promotion in March 2007, this session will generally be grading based.


Warm up - Tracksuit, T-shirt, Trainers etc.
TKD - Dobok, Belt, Protective equipment etc.

Session Plan:

Warm up & Stretching - 20 mins
Fundamental Movements - 20 mins
Patterns - 60 mins
Set Sparring (1 step / foot sparring) - 20 mins
Pad Work - 20 mins
Breaking (if a holder is available) - 30 mins
Warm down & Stretching - 10 mins

These timings are approximate.

During the breaking slot as not all of us will be able to us the holder at once, I suggest we use this time for any questions we may have for our senior instructors. If a holder is not available then suggestions for this slot are open eg. Free-Sparring?
