18/10/2012 Taekwondo

This week we thought we'd have a bash at a martial art.
Guy and Lisa Southard are both black belts and very kindly spent an evening at Budehaven sports hall to show us some moves.
Allthough we only had a couple hours with the quick footed fast fisted couple we were given a small insight in to this aincent Korean combat technique.
Firstly after a good allround warmup members paired up and had go at defending their partners attempts at making contact with the shoulders and knees of their opponent. this quickly moved on to practicing a few baisic kicks and punches, with the aim still remaining on defence rather than just attacking the opponent. An excellent meeting providing much amusement, Thank you to Guy and Lisa Southard.
