Did you attend our Family Fun & Challenge Day?

It hasn’t been done for more than six years. We couldn’t wait for the chance to bring back some old-school fun to the club. And judging by the sheer number of cheers, smiles, laughing, comradery and general happiness that filled the Australind Senior High School Gymnasium on Sunday, June 10, WE DID IT!

Taekwondo Central’s Family Fun & Challenge Day was something we, the leadership group, will remember for a long time to come. We hope our Members will too.

Right from the outset, our 4m inflatable taekwondo kicker, grabbed everyone’s attention and announced participants and spectators alike were in for a great day. We kicked off the fun with a ‘Bring a Friend’ training session where participants rotated through three stations: kicking, self-defence and mixed drills. Whole club events like this are pretty special since they give us all the opportunity to come together and share in our mutual enjoyment of Taekwondo.

But there is something even MORE special about having the chance to share that enjoyment with friends and family who may not have seen this side of you before. It was truly heart-warming to see mums, dads, sisters, brothers and friends jump in and have a go, inspired by the martial artists of all ages in their lives.

The arrival of Donny the Dragon really helped lift the party atmosphere of the day and he proved a big hit with our littlest members…..and even some of the bigger ones! With our classes running in Bunbury, Eaton and Australind, the lunchtime sausage sizzle provided a great opportunity for families from all of our operating locations to come together and socialise.

Donny The Dragon mixes in with the kids at the 2018 Challenge Day - www.tkdcentral.comOn a generally wet and windy day it was an absolute stroke of luck to see the sun come out for our lunch break. A massive thank you must be sent out to our sausage sizzle team of Black Belt Tahlia Gowland, mum Deanna and Ajana’s mum Michelle who were under the pump but made sure everyone was taken care of as quickly as possible.

Our Agility Course kicked off the Challenge aspect of our big day and it was obvious hearts were literally melting around the room as our tiny Dragonfly members threw themselves into the competition. Cheered on by the audience and our instructors it was fantastic to see all of our Members enjoy the boost in confidence that comes from competing in a fun and supportive environment with their friends.

The sense of achievement too was real when our stunning Gold, Silver and Bronze medals with Taekwondo Central emblem were handed out. The flying kick competition was another magnificent sight for our spectators as some of our Members literally blew us away with their agility.

Gladiator Battles provided plenty of laughs before the atmosphere became more serious again for our Patterns Competition, showcasing yet another wonderful aspect of the training we undertake at Taekwondo Central.

Recognition must be given to Head Instructor Ajana Plunkett who took on the bulk of the massive amount of work involved in organising a day like this.

Thank you to the below and everyone who contributed towards making our first Family Fun & Challenge Day in YEARS such a wonderful success. We promise we won’t leave it so long again for our next special club event.

A Guaranteed More Exclusive Martial Arts Training Experience
The Paragon Program is for the students or parents who want a more personalised,
exclusive training experience of a great instructor student ratio under a Head Instructor Black Belt (Min 10 Years Experience)
Guaranteed limited class numbers further ensure a higher level in martial arts skills.
The Paragon Program is only for current Taekwondo Central Members for at least 2 Terms (6 Months)

The Paragon Program is a semi-private lesson helping students sharpen their self defence skills, accelerate
physical capability and speed up learning of our clubs skills. Its designed for a higher result

-

My child has been in Paragon for 3 Terms and the difference it’s made is unquestionable. He loves it. He’s stronger, more confident and focused. It’s even improved his focus at school!
The Paragon Program offers a more personalised learning experience. It enables the student to develop their Taekwondo skills in a challenging and fast-paced environment that is tailored to their individual strength’s and needs. The small classes foster a closer relationship between the instructor and student which is an important building block and plays a pivotal role in the student’s overall growth and progress.
I couldn’t be happier with my decision to put him in Paragon.
- Leisa (Mother)

I put my Lucas into Paragon almost two years ago at a time when I felt he was starting to struggle with mastering the more advanced techniques as he progressed through the belt ranks. The closer attention he has received through Paragon since then has seen not only his skills come along in leaps and bounds, but his confidence and therefore enthusiasm for his training generally. He is now well equipped to begin the final stage of preparation for attempting his Black Belt grading at the end of the year. Absolutely worth the investment.
- Kristy (Mother & TKD Student)

I have been in the Paragon Program for two years. I prefer Paragon over regular classes because I get more one-on-one time with the instructor. Since I have been in the program I have seen my flexibility, technique and general skill improve hugely. It has helped me get through two black belt gradings as I have more time with Justin to refine everything. I am thoroughly enjoying the Paragon Program and will definitely continue throughout the year.
-Tahlia (Black Belt & Paragon Student))

The freedom to go to any or all classes and have the opportunity to have multiple weekly training partners on top of the semi private (paragon) classes on the Friday is priceless
- Meredith (Mother)

Taking Paragon classes has really lifted my confidence and technique. Having a smaller class means I can get more intense and personalised training. I can fine tune parts of my technique which can be overlooked in a large group simply due to the class numbers.
– Michael (Paragon Student)

For me, Speaking from the perspective of an adult participant, the main reasons for my preference of paragon classes is the lack of distraction (my personality suits small group rather than large class environments), the focus on skill in delivery and attention to detail, with an approach that emphasises fun game-play and flexibility over ticking boxes. That’s what I enjoy most.
It’s the opportunity to know what you are doing, not just getting an idea of what you’re doing.

Black Belt Grading May, 2018:

Results By Kristy Hitchens aka The Mortal Mouse

I attended a Black Belt grading seminar in Perth on Sunday, May 27 with my son Lucas and a dedicated group of club members determined to support their Taekwondo Family.

It was the first time I had been to one. The opportunity is only made available every six months.

Having now witnessed 9 Taekwondo Central Members achieve what so many others fail to do when they take up any form of martial arts, I would urge anyone to come along next time as a spectator.

I promise you won’t regret it.

It’s possible ONLY that dedicated minority of people who choose to pursue the myriad of health and well-being benefits that come from the study of martial arts would truly understand exactly how important the achievements reached on Sunday were.

Regardless, it would be hard to imagine anyone standing in that spectators’ gallery who would not be deeply moved by what they saw occur on the mats below.

Before I go ANY further, sincere congratulations to Taekwondo Central’s newest Black Belts:

* Melanie Buhlmann

* Rebecca Buhlmann

* Rebecca Collis

* Ashton English

* Ariana Lloyd

* Brayden Nardone

* Mia Robertson

* Gary Veljacich

And sincere congratulations also to our newest 2nd Dan Black Belt:

* Travis Mackay

They were among about 60 practitioners of all ages, who took part in the exams from clubs also affiliated with our OhDoKwan association.

And they did so in front of Grand Masters Ross and Carmella Hartnett along with about 10 other examiners plus the audience of supporters above.

Make no mistake. The almost silent atmosphere is tense, daunting and potentially over-whelming.

This is just not something you can achieve without dedication, perseverance, skill plus physical and mental strength.

The statistics vary but it is said that ONLY 1 in every 20,000 who take up a form of martial arts will make it to Black Belt level.

It’s a truly stunning lifetime achievement and gains them entry into a very exclusive club.

Every single one of our members who triumphed on the day could tell you of their own personal battles and obstacles overcome throughout their lead-up and preparation to reach that glorious moment of accomplishment.

And understanding the inner wars being waged on the mats, is what makes witnessing your club members achieve their goals such a humbling experience – bonding us all together as a true Taekwondo Family.

Melanie Buhlmann: About three years ago, Mel set her whole family the goal of achieving a Black Belt in Taekwondo. Getting herself, partner Gary and daughter Becky to this point has been nothing short of climbing a mountain. All while working as a nursing lecturer AND completing a Masters Degree in nursing.

Rebecca Buhlmann: Those who know her have seen 11-year-old Becky’s strength, technique, ability and maturity come along in leaps and bounds over the past six months. After battling illness and over-whelming emotions during Master Justin’s testing one week prior to grading, she excelled on the day.

Rebecca Collis: Achieving Black Belt has been a long-term goal of Rebecca’s and it was incredible to see her overcome her naturally shy and extremely gentle nature to reach victory. The hard work she has put into her training, particularly over the past 12 months has seen dramatic improvements in her strength and flexibility.

Ashton English: During his Black Belt preparation, Ashton had difficulty with some of the kicking techniques. He’s a perfect example of practice makes progress! And he got there without ever losing his trademark grin. But we don’t think we’ve EVER seen his wonderful smile so big as on grading day after smashing his boards on the first go!

Ariana Lloyd: Always doubting of her true abilities, it was at times necessary to help Ariana build her self-confidence. During her Black Belt training she developed a level of determination and commitment we hadn’t previously seen. She pushed hard and what better way to sky-rocket her self- confidence than to work hard and achieve success as she did with her grading.

Brayden Nardone: Seeing our Brayden have his name called by Master Ross indicating his pass mark was such a sweet moment. We always knew he had the ability but Brayden is just one of those kids who struggles to focus. But knowing this about him is what makes his achievement all the more special. Brayden shows us all that with determination and perseverance, you CAN overcome the hurdles to get where you want to be.

Mia Robertson: Another one of our Members who is naturally shy and quiet, Mia previously lacked some power in her techniques. But wow! Over the past six months she has really come out of her shell and embraced a more fierce side. Fantastic to see.

Gary Veljacich: At just three months off turning 60, nobody has overcome the amount of physical obstacles thrown at Gary prior to reaching his Black Belt goal. Most significantly, (many might not know) Gary spent Christmas in hospital battling a potentially life-threatening infection. Early in 2018

he thought he had kissed goodbye not only this year’s chance of reaching Black Belt but EVERY YEAR’S! How must he be feeling now?

Travis Mackay: Dropping back into Black Belt training after a bit of an absence from the sport must have had its physical demands for Travis but in no time at all he has become such a valued member of the club and so willing to share his passion and knowledge – in between preparing himself to achieve his 2nd Dan. He stayed focused on the day, not letting a tiny pattern mishap shake his determination to succeed. Brilliant effort!

Our next generation of Cho Dan Bo’s will now begin their intense preparation for the next Black Belt grading which will occur at some point in November/early December.

Stay tuned to our website and new Facebook page for the release of dates later in the year and perhaps you would like to come along and watch!

Coya Brown with the black fidget spinner - www.tkdcentral.com

Thank you to all persons who purchased a spinner and nominated in our $100 spinner contest. Profits from our Fidget Spinner Sales will now go towards medals at our upcoming CHALLENGE DAY

It was Coya Brown who topped the standing record in the last week to just clinch the $100 prize. Coya got a time of 2m.43s on his Black Fidget Spinner. Just a mere 5 seconds longer than the nearest rival but the extra 5 seconds made him an extra $100

Coya is part of the Paragon Program and a regular to our Sparring Class and all the instructor have all seen a noticeable improvement in a young man who is determined to reach black belt. He currently hold his blue belt – 1 stripe after starting his martial arts journey in Little Dragons. Coya’s favourite aspect of training is the sparring in which he isn’t afraid to mix it with the black belts showing great courage.

Keep up the great work Coya

Test Your Technique – Try This!! – A Free Lesson From Master Justin Warren

Can You Really Kick? Lets Find Out!

Take My Personal Level Checker Technique Test

 

Master Justin Warren Teaches You - 3

Balance & Technique are 2 of the major factors of developing a controlled kick.

Whether it be a grading examination or a kick to finish an aggressor. being able to maintain balance, control with correct body mechanics, kinetic linking and flexibility all add to the desired result.
Being able to control your kick like you do a punch is a great self defence tool and in many cases an unexpected one the surprises

In class, I think one of the best drills to practise is the Short Axe – Turning Kick – Side Kick Drill.
It really catches out the puffy chest individuals who give a lot of unwanted advise about your technique.

THE KICKING TECHNIQUE TEST 1

This will show your where your kicks lag. your flexibility is falling short and your targeting is on

This is my personal little skill checker that I turn to get a quick look at my forward kicks. It will test your hamstring and groin flexibility.
It will also test the strength of the “Leg Lifting” muscles at both the front and side
The kicking actions include a leg contraction, an extension or flick and a push action
Target Areas are all different and so are support foot angles and there is 2 parts.
1 – In The Air (Technique)       2 – On A Heavy Target (Power)

Counterstrike Workshop Passes On Essential Self Defense Skills In Eaton

Held by the Shire Of Dardanup, we had a fun opportunity to run a free self defence workshop at the Eaton Recreation Centre.

The class was taught strategies on defence, importance of posture projection, how and where to strike, how to deflect strikes and escaping grab attempts
All had a great time and thankyou for the so many great comments at the end, it was great to see so many enjoying themselves and having fun while learning the potentially life saving skills we teach

I would like to thank Kristy Hitchens for helping out both in the background and helping the participants pick up the skills also thanks to Juliani Wayan for her advise to some of our ladies that was well taken in and appreciated.
Thank you to the Eaton Recreation Centre & Shire Of Dardanup,
