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.

Inflatable Taekwondo Kicker - www.tkdcentral.com


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.

Donny The Dragon with some of the participants of the 2018 Challenge day - www.tkdcentral.com

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.

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!

Why You NEED to get your kids into Martial Arts.

Benefits Of Martial Arts

By Kelly Platts

ANXIETY. It seems to be a problem suffered by more and more people these days. The worrying part, a lot of these people are actually our kids.

Why, whose to know exactly why. Lifestyle? Diet? Our Education system? Who knows, but it’s here and we need to develop ways to overcome it. Especially for our little ones. The earlier we can teach our kids how to handle the stresses and worries of life, the better off they will be.

We’ve seen it time and time again, parents have read about the benefits of martial arts and they decide to bring their kids along to try a class. Many will love it from the word go and will continue with it for years. Some last a few terms, others only a few lessons. It’s just not their thing, but they tried it!

But then there’s a small number of kids who just won’t give it a go, I suspect they want to, kids are naturally curious. But fear, shyness and anxiety are just too overwhelming and despite all efforts from Mum/Dad and Instructors it just ends in tears.

It is these kids that could actually really benefit the most from what Martial Arts and what Master Justin has to offer them.

Hence the introduction of the “Double Dragons Program”.

A programme specifically designed for these little guys who just need that bit of extra support and attention. In this class Mum or Dad are 100% involved. They’re not sitting on the sidelines. With a parent by their side, often this is all that’s needed to get them going, and what a great bonding opportunity!

Class numbers are capped at a maximum of six, so not only do you get a more personal experience with Head Instructor Master Justin, the overall class feeling becomes a lot less intimidating for the kids.

The Program Is Designed To Improve & Develop

Childs Personal Safety Skills Great For Coordination Give Them A Confident Start Be There To Help Them Progress All Important, An Activity For Both Parent & Child Light to Moderate Exercise For Parent Increase Bonding

We’re really excited to see what this special class can achieve. Master Justin has a truly unique skill with little ones. His kind and gentle manner really gels with our all students, but his gift is without a doubt, best applied to the youngest members. We know there will be some really positive outcomes for the students in this class.

But don’t stop there, after experiencing some real successes with the Double Dragons, your child should have the courage and the confidence to take the next step, and by now you will have seen first hand the amazing energy and enthusiasm from Master Justin and the incredible benefits of training in Martial Arts.

Have a think about some of the qualities and skills you want your children to have as they transition from childhood into young adults. We all want them to be successful and in good health, to live long and rewarding lives, yes? In Mind, Body and Spirit!

 

What are some of the skills that successful people hold, how do they achieve success?

- Mental determination: The drive and desire to push for more.

- Perseverance: The ability to continue to walk forward in the face of defeat or disappointments that come along the way.

- Confidence: A belief in themselves and their ability to achieve what they want.

- Self Control: Understanding success involves some sacrifice.

- Problem Solving & Adaptation: An Extremely important skill that is needed across all areas of life!

- Patience, Integrity and humility. Traits that are invaluable to a successful and well rounded individual.

 

But there are two aspects to overall health.

One is your physical Health; the other is your mental health.  Without each other in unison, things just don’t run well.

A strong, healthy and fit body will undoubtable help carry them through a successful life.

- Balance: Without it we are pretty much buggered. What’s the one of the first things we lose into our elderly years? Balance! Utilise your muscles, exercise when you’re young and really strengthen your body and core. Your balance will remain with you for A LOT longer than the average person.

- Flexibility: Can you touch your toes? No? Why not? Age is no excuse! But starting early will make the transition into the golden years much easier!

- Muscle tone & Endurance: Good muscle tone promotes good posture, and having the strength to perform many daily activities are vital. Use it or lose it. There is no truer saying. Don’t move, and in years you will have trouble moving. Move more consistently through your life and in years to come you will still be moving!

So now you’ve read it, the benefits of Martial Arts are incredible! Why WOULDN’T you want to give this amazing opportunity and start in life to your kids?
