Kelly Rowe Takes Top Award At November 2018 Black Belt Grading

 

Kelly Rowe Fully Focused During The Poomsae Section Of Her Black Belt Grading - www.tkdcentral.com

Having a Taekwondo Central student pass Black Belt is always something that makes myself and Head Instructor Ajana very proud.

Its part the reason we dedicate so much of our time to the growth of others but every now and then a student comes along that can be seen from observation. nothing needs to be said.

November 3rd, 2018 was another great day for the club. 4 new Black Belts and 2 who passed their 2nd Dan Black Belts.
But something happened that is a first for Taekwondo Central. “A Black Belt Best Grading Award

Check out the full Black belt grading story on the club – Click Here

Grandmaster Ross Hartnett  Gives Kelly Rowe Her Best Black Belt Grading Award - www.tkdcentral.com

This Honour bestowed upon the best Technical & Traditional Taekwondo exponent is a little different to our style. The freestyle taekwondo we teach has less tradition and more defence.
We as a club spend less time on poomsae (Patterns) and more on developing powerful strikes and defences relevant to todays style encounters. No one is wrong or right. It just a matter on what you focus on.
Martial arts has many aspects to it. Its one of the things that make it so fascinating.

Kelly Rowe Demonstrates A Hgh Front Kick At Her Black belt Grading - www.tkdcentral.com

Kelly Rowe has done the amazing task of winning one of the “Best Grading Award” from a grading that consisted of some 70 people. The award has just been running a few years but its a great achievement for both Kelly & Taekwondo Central being our first time. So what made Kelly make that level above. It really is a case of the little extra that turns ordinary into extraordinary. Its a case of what you put in is what you get out.

Kelly has been a result of 2 things. A product of her own dedication & discipline. Her thirst for knowledge and growth in her martial arts is truly impressive.
Secondly Kelly has been a product of Taekwondo Centrals training, however just to be clear, extra personal time training due to her drive is the main contributor to Kelly’s success.

A regular member of the Paragon Program and a person that has put the time into learning from what all 3 of the clubs main instructors can teach, Kelly has also added her own training program at home to help her absorb her new martial arts lessons. Kelly has been a part of the Sparring Class & Demo Teams plus a Club Assistant and even recently lead her own classes.
Head Instructor Ajana Plunkett Embraces New Black belt And Best Grading Award Winner Kelly Rowe - www.tkdcentral.comAs a true martial artist, her goal is to keep on the journey to Martial Arts Mastery. With her eyes focused on 2nd Dan Black belt next year an liftin her instructing roles within Taekwondo Central.
Kelly is also the Founder of Martialfit. A Martial Arts based exercise system that is for fitness not belts and its taken off in popularity.

With demand and reach of classes now expanding from Bunbury to Busselton, Kelly can bring what many other personal trainers cant. Yes she has the personal training qualifications but she also is a Black Belt.


Martialfit Promo - www.tkdcentral.com
She really does put her all into her training. I am of the belief that she will do the same for you. be it get in shape or get fitter to start working on belts. Martialfit bring on its own benefits. plus in the knowledge that your trainer actually takes pride in her training. Its an attitude you can grab onto and carry the rest of the day.

Going For Black And Never Going Back – Luke Crane

Luke Crane During The Poomsae Section Of His 1st Dan Black belt  Grading - www.tkdcentral.com

By Luke Crane, 1st Dan Black Belt

It’s November 4th, I’m sitting passenger side of my car heading to Dunsborough for a family catch up. The last 24 hours has been an absolute blur.

The events of November 3rd’s Black Belt Dan Grading still haven’t fully sunk in. Everything feels so surreal.

I have achieved something most people never will. I have obtained my Black Belt along with 5 others from my Taekwondo Central family.

Together we all further cemented our footings into our own Taekwondo journeys. Four of us obtaining our First Dan Black Belt and two of us reaching Second Dan.

I could not be more proud of the amazing effort each of us has put into preparing for yesterday’s grading. Blood, sweat, tears, injuries, sickness. We have all experienced a wide range of emotions pushing ourselves above and beyond our limits, and it payed off for every one of us.

Watching Lucas and Jy nailing their patterns, Kian with his lightning fast moves through his sparring, Trinity flawlessly and effortlessly breaking each of her boards with such fluid motion. Kelly’s beautiful stances with such precise technique also managing to take out a best in grading award.

See The Whole Teams Grading Day Photos – Click Here

I am beyond proud of each of these people’s efforts, I am so proud to have been part of their grading.

So how did I get here? What led me to this point?

A big part of my journey, as many who know me, is my daughter Remy’s influence. Without enrolling her into Taekwondo Central, I may never have been standing where I was yesterday.

Assistant Instructor Luke Crane with Remy - www.tkdcentral.com

I have never been a confident person. In the past I may have even seemed quite the nervous type. I find it difficult to start a conversation with someone I don’t know. I have no problems holding a conversation but I’ve always felt as if I’m interrupting something, or that no-one’s really interested in hearing what I have to say.

I used to get stuck in my own head a lot, I used to listen to my cautious thoughts too much, and I never jumped at opportunities that maybe I should have. Over many years, I slowly worked out that this was not the way to live.

I slowly corrected my thought patterns, I managed to move those cautious thoughts aside and allowed myself to breathe, to realise how draining all these excess thoughts were.

Taekwondo has been a big part of defeating my insecurities, building courage, building relationships, building strength, honour and determination. Taekwondo has done amazing things for me and I will always look back and be so proud of everything I have achieved within Taekwondo and my life as a whole since.

Luke Crane Knee Strikes During His Black Belt Grading - www.tkdcentral.com

I started training back in September 2016 and I couldn’t be more proud of myself for hitting my second milestone in Taekwondo on November 3rd, 2018: Achieving my First Dan Black Belt.

The first milestone I set for myself was to be able to straighten my leg above my head in warm-up stretches. I achieved that roughly one year into my journey.

My next milestone: 2nd Dan Black Belt. There have also been several unexpected milestones that have popped up unknowingly during my time training. I joined the leadership team and very quickly made my way to Assistant Instructor at Taekwondo Central.

This was something I never saw myself doing yet something that I absolutely love. Becoming a full-time instructor would be amazing, it’s definitely on my list of to do’s.

Kelly Rowe & Luke Crane Spar During The Nov 2018 Black Belt Grading

However let’s back up a bit.

Earlier I mentioned that I only started training in September 2016 and managed to obtain my Black Belt on November 3rd, 2018. How in just over 2 years have I got to this level when it generally takes 4 years?

Based on this you might be thinking getting a Black Belt is a walk in the park.

Well I’ve got news for you, it’s not! There is nothing easy about obtaining such a feat. It requires commitment, strength, focus, resilience, stamina it requires the drive to never give up.

You will at some stage be in pain, it may be new muscles forming that have never been used, you may suffer from such pains as shin splints which can be extremely painful for some, it may just be a simple accidental collision during sparring, over stretching, pushing yourself too far too quickly.

At some stage you will hurt, and that’s all part of the journey.

Luke Crane Shows His Focus During His Successful Black Belt Grading 2018 - www.tkdcentral.com

I had the “pleasure” of a major shin collision a week and a half before grading. I didn’t know it at the time but when I got home I had a lump the size of my fist on my leg.

I was barely able to walk and had to keep my leg elevated and iced up. Only the day of my grading was I finally able to see my ankle because the majority of swelling and bruising had gone down.

Was I concerned about my grading due to this injury?

I hadn’t done any sparring since the collision and I had at least 8 rounds of sparring coming up as part of my grading. So the answer to my question was yes! I was concerned, I knew that I wasn’t able to perform to a level I know I can.

But it wasn’t going to stop me, it didn’t stop me. I pushed past it.

My leg was hit a few times, and believe me, it hurt! But I wasn’t going to let this stop me from coming and achieving my goal for the day and it didn’t.

So minus all of the above, all of the extra training (you would see me within our club 6 days a week either training or helping others train) what else was required to help me go for black?

It’s simple really. I now realise it’s the key to achieving anything you set your mind to.

Believe in yourself, and trust in the people who are helping you through that journey.

Master Justin, Instructors Ajana and John, none of them would tell you to go for this amazing achievement if they didn’t believe you were ready. Listen to those who are helping you out, they want nothing more than to help you succeed and succeed we did.
Luke Crane Smashes His Board At His Black belt Grading - www.tkdcentral.com

My journey however doesn’t end here.

I will continue to teach and train and better myself and my knowledge about this amazing sport, Taekwondo.

Black is just the beginning. It’s the end of my probation to prove that I’m worthy of holding this world recognised certification. The real journey begins now

ECU Self Defence Course A Great Success

 

Learning How To Apply Kinetic Linking To Your Strike - ECU Self Defence - www.tkdcentral.comHow Lucky we have been to be invited to teach our Counterstrike Self Defence System to the Students of Edith Cowan University South West Campus Bunbury.

Over 4 session we covered both defence and attack strategies how to throw a person and developing enough power to break a pine board.
We’ve had a great time and have been impressed by the skills developed over a short intense course.

Staff and students of Edith Cowan University (ECU) South West had access to a 4 week Self-Defence Program
facilitated by TKD Central (http://tkdcentral.com/). The workshops included a series of basic self-defence moves
as well as protective behaviours and tactics to deter potential conflicts and victimisation.

Here is what the participants had to say about the workshops:

“I think that this workshop has been absolutely amazing, I have had so much fun as well as learnt a lot and now feel as though I would be able to defend myself if need be. I really feel that self-defence is a very important thing to learn as nursing students as we are going to be in situations in this field of work where we may require some basic knowledge. Thank you for organising this event, I am so glad that I was able to be a part of it.”

“I have enjoyed having a go trying something new! It was a lovely opportunity to have a go. Justin puts people at ease. He is a natural teacher. I enjoyed the exercise. And hopefully I have learnt some moves to keep me safe if I were to be attacked! Look out!”

“I really enjoyed participating in the ECU Self-defence program 2018, it was a good experience. The reason for me attending was that I was seeking to improve my confidence, and after this session I feel that I am on my way to improving my confidence. My only regret is not signing up sooner as it was a lot of fun. Thanks so much for organising the self-defence classes for SW ECU!

“It was a fabulous event and I really enjoyed it”

“I absolutely loved it and would definitely love to attend again next year, obviously time permitting. I think it is very worthwhile to attend, as we all need to know these things. Thanks very much. I would love to attend again next year.”

“The 4 week program was so much fun to be a part of and very helpful to learn basic self-defence in the case that we ever need to use them. Despite being the shortest person there, I feel confident that I have some skills to defend myself. I would definitely participate again if it was offered again”

“Just wanted to give you some feedback on the self-defence classes that were run. Firstly thank you so much for arranging them, it is obviously something you are passionate about. I found them to be a great way for Uni students to discover ways that may assist them in the future should they be attacked.

I strongly believe though that whilst the things that are being shown are useful, self-defence is something that needs to be done regularly to become reflex in an incident. Therefore, I would love to see and attend more classes like this at Uni whether it be regular or a couple of times a year.

Martial arts is such a valuable tool not only in defence but in learning discipline and confidence. However, for a lot of students it’s not affordable so when the Uni runs things like this it is a fantastic opportunity, for people who would not otherwise be able to access self-defence lessons.”

“I really enjoyed the self-defence classes and they have had a significant and positive impact on me. I found the free on-campus self-defence classes practical and empowering. I am interested in continuing outside ECU, at this stage, probably the MartialFit classes with Kelly to increase my fitness and then I will see from there. I would definitely attend again if they were run on the SW Campus.”

“I must thank my friend. I’m not the type to join things like this I’m generally a very nervous person and honesty quite lazy in the fitness department lol ???? . She joined me up without really asking and I couldn’t be happier. After the first class I felt incredible. Total satisfaction. As you know by the last class, I was chitchatting away to everyone and feel I can walk around campus to say G’day to you all.

My mind feels better my body feels better and my confidence is up where it should be! I’m so happy I did this, met wonderful friends and it’s now something I will be continuing with my son. Thanks again for organising this program Mel and I will pop in soon for a chat ????”

“I came along to the self-defence class with my firend. I must admit that I’ve been inspired! I had a great time and appreciated what we were taught in that hour. I believe it will benefit so many people, not just so that they can have the basic skills to get away, but also for fitness. I hope you manage to get the back-up you need to continue this awesome program.”

“It was a real blast. When I went along to the first class I really had no idea what to expect or what kind of skills would be taught. I didn’t know it would turn out to be so practical and useful and doable (and DEFINITELY didn’t think we’d be breaking boards by the end of the course)!I felt really comfortable around the instructors and the other people in the classes – it wasn’t at all intimidating. It’s a great confidence booster to know I now have some defence moves in my repertoire which I can fall back on if I can’t run/talk my way out of a situation! Now that the ECU classes have finished, I want to keep going! I’m going to pop along and check out the open TKD classes. Thanks again for organising this – it’s been a huge benefit to me personally, not to mention all the other people in the classes. I’d love to see the same thing happening again at ECU in future!”

“The whole self-defence course was fun and really well worth doing. Thank you for making it possible for us to experience this on the SW Campus.”

How Taekwondo Has Positively Impacted My Life – Trinity Best

A Truly Amazing Young Women -

Trinity Best has an amazing story of her personal journey of inspiration, mental determination, success and talks about how Taekwondo has been a big part of her life

We are very proud to have her as part of our leadership team and for me also the Paragon Program but I think for me personally I will never forget a message Trinity sent me in the past asking about getting involved with our Leadership Team.

In a particular section she explained to me why she would be a good choice and what she could add to the club. I was blown away. Not just at how she wrote the message but the love for Taekwondo she had put behind it. what she had sent to me was a message that only someone who had real passion for what she did could write.

Please Enjoy Trinity’s Story

Trinity Best Flyes with a Flying Side Kick - www.tkdcentral.com

Hi, my name is Trinity and I am 13 years old.

I have been training in taekwondo for almost 9 years and I am currently a Black Belt 1st Dan, going for 2nd Dan in November this year.

I still remember the day when I was five, and my mum asked me if I wanted to try this sport. We were casually walking past subway in Bunbury and my response was ‘Yeah sure.’ If only I knew how life changing that conversation would be for me.

I began with TKD Central in the little dragons program and I absolutely loved it. We lived out of town, so mum would need to finish work and then I would hassle her to drive me to Bunbury for training. I stuck with this until I had completed the entire little dragons program and progressed into the senior belt class.

Trinity Best - Little Dragon - www.tkdcentral.com

At this time my family moved even further away from Bunbury which made training much less achievable. So mum enrolled me in the local taekwondo club who I trained with for about two years. This club was slightly different in structure due to being part of the International Federation opposed to World Taekwondo Federation. Both offered so much to me in my taekwondo journey.

Then came the worst year of my life…. I began to feel unwell. Nothing too extreme initially, just unwell. Except that instead of getting better, I was getting worse. My parents took me to countless of doctors’ appointments and many hospital visits, yet no one could work out what was wrong. Until I had a tell-tale nasty bright red rash that began to spread from my left foot and up my leg.

Trinity Best - Infection Photo - www.tkdcentral.com

I was diagnosed with Osteomyelitis (infection in the bone) and my treatment was quickly taken over by PMH hospital. I was rushed into surgery and spent a long time in hospital recovering.

My parents were told on several occasions to prepare for the fact that I may lose my left foot and I was given a six month combination of IV and oral antibiotics.

One of the first things I asked my Paediatrician after surgery was when could I start taekwondo training again. He said “I am sorry Trinity, but no contact sport for at least 12 months.”

I was beyond devastated and grumped at everyone for at least a week before I finally understood.

This was the lowest point for me.

But I concentrated on getting better, went back to school, caught up on what I had missed, and took up swimming as soon as they gave me clearance to do so.

I would swim several times a week to both strengthen my foot, and to keep up my fitness levels.
I learnt three things from that year.

Trinity Best - Up and About after Operation - www.tkdcentral.com

1. Sometimes things happen that are completely out of our control. You just need to do the best with what you have.

2. Even if you think there is a clear path to your goal, it doesn’t mean it’s the only path to get there.

3. I really enjoy swimming. Another two significant things happened that year.

My local taekwondo club closed down, and we moved back closer to town. This meant that I could train at the TKD central Australind class. Because my mum was still being cautious, I began in the second term. The same time as my little sister Annika started the Little Dragons program I had been raving to her about for years.

Annika Best with Trinity Best - www.tkdcentral.com

I entered back into training with a blue belt 1 stripe and my eyes firmly set on black. I achieved this goal in November 2017, but what I learnt along the way was priceless.

I believe there is so many benefits that children can use in their lives through training taekwondo.

Sometimes I think of the person I would be if I had of said no to mum on that day at the subway and had never started my TKD journey.

I realise I wouldn’t have any of the following traits that I now value so much in my life.

Confidence: The level of self-achievement and self-esteem that you feel after each of your successful belt grading’s is hard to explain. You work so hard to prefect each step and skill. So to achieve these goals is extremely rewarding and really keeps you motivated to want to achieve more. I am also someone that isn’t afraid to stand up in front of the entire school to speak. Some people say that this is a personality trait, but I think it’s because I have stood in front of a panel for grading’s since I was five. I’m ok with people judging my abilities and I learn from any mistakes. I also think this makes me more confident to just be myself.

Commitment: To commit to something and following through with it, also brings a sense of achievement. I have never struggled with committing to taekwondo and I don’t think I have ever said that I don’t want to go to training. Each time I bow into training it feels like I am coming home. And my training friends are like extended family to me. So it’s fairly easy to remain committed. I know that this isn’t unique to me, as my sister is exactly the same. We are the ones hassling our parents for more training and getting frustrated when they plan things for the weekends and we can’t go to sparring classes!

Trinity Best Smashes Her Board - www.tkdcentral.com

Respect: There is so much respect within our club. We respect our instructors for their skills, knowledge and time that they give to us. We respect higher belts for their experience and what they can teach us. We also respect our elders as when we line up in our ranks, if you are the same belt as someone else, the oldest stands in the higher rank and I acknowledge that they have earnt that right. Probably most importantly, we learn to respect ourselves more. To believe in our own abilities yet know that we all have different limitations. But there is also a general feeling of respect throughout the club and everyone has something they can teach you. Some of the biggest lessons I have learnt on my journey have come from younger children on lower belts. They can certainly remind you to stay on your game!

The importance of having good mentors: There is so much that we learn from each of the instructors at our club.

I take so much from the paragon classes with Master Justin. He has such a passion for this sport and for seeing his students succeed. He shows me all of the precision in each move and the reasoning behind each step in our patterns. Master Justin pushes me to be better than I was the week before and believes in my abilities. I always leave Paragon classes feeling extremely accomplished.

Head Instructor Ajana provides ongoing support for me throughout the week. She patiently guides me and ensures that I am always on task. There is so many traits that I admire from Ajana and she is a big reason in why I moved my goal post beyond black belt. I love watching Ajana with kicks and patterns. Her every movement just seems to flow so effortlessly. Her ability to run larger classes and meet the needs of so many differing levels is just inspirational.

Trinity Best with Head Instructor Ajana - www.tkdcentral.com

Instructor John has spent hours helping me with my sparring. There are some areas of sparring that I find more challenging, but John is always supportive and makes classes really fun. I also help John with a junior class as part of the leadership team and I can say first hand that younger children look up to him with such admiration. He is also one of those unique people that seems to defy physics with a killer axe kick!

There is plenty of other club members that have helped me in my journey. Luke, Kelly and Travis all provide something different to our training sessions and all help us to strive for our goals. Rachel, Kian and Ashlee (all of who went from Cho Dan Bo to Black belt at the same time as me) I think I will also have a special bond with.

Goal Setting: You are forever setting goals in taekwondo. From being able to do a particular kick, to passing your coloured belt grading, to achieving your black belt.

My goal throughout taekwondo was to achieve black belt. That was until I got to red belt. Then I actually got a little worried and had to reconsider my goals. Not because I was scared to go for black belt (which I was) but because Taekwondo had been such a big part of my life for so long and I didn’t want it to end there.

So before I even got to black belt grading, I had moved my goal post out. I don’t believe I would of felt so much success in life without having this sport and I hope that my passion continues throughout the rest of my life. So I will be back in Perth in November to hopefully leave with 2nd Dan.

Trinity Best - Flying Kick - www.tkdcentral.com

Other Peoples Success: Competition, taekwondo is obviously a competitive sport. But the main competition is truly within yourself and wanting to continuously improve. As much as it is so much of an achievement when you pass your grading’s, seeing your training friends succeed is almost just as rewarding.

We all know how much has gone into getting to that point. And we all try and help each other with the areas we may be struggling with. It really is a gift to see people reaching their goals. I could go on and on about why Taekwondo is so important to me. But overall I am extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to participate in this sport and so grateful to everyone that has been part of my journey.

Trinity Best.
