Red Belt and Black Belt Training March 2018

Posted: 08/02/2018

We received  positive feedback  from Master Donnelly and Mr Carter for the students that  attended  the Red/Black Belt training sessions on Sunday 1st October 2017.

Key training ideas that were discussed included:

  • Positions of hands when performing blocks ( Chambering).
  • Foot positions for side, turning and front kicks.
  • Power and focus.
  • Fitness and the importance of regular training.
  • Stances.

Hopefully these ideas re-inforced what we already do!

The English Championships are back, to be held at Worcester again.

We need to ensure ALL entries are paid and in for 24th February to ensure we all are eligible to attend.

All events are as per usual, but there is also a Team Pattern Event, a three person team doing the same pattern in sequence.


Get on board with these events and continue your journey in Tae Kwon-do!

2018 promises to be another busy year for us!

We have yet to have confirmation, but the Midlands Championships are often held in late January at Kettering, I will keep you updated when I know.

People taking their Black belts in 2018 need to know that the  Red/Black belt sessions TAGB Central Midlands North sessions will take place in March and April 2018, so please keep a look out for updates on the exact weekends that they will take place on. We don’t know them yet.

Our club coloured belt grading will take place at Atherstone Memorial Hall, Leisure Centre Long Street Atherstone CV9 1AX, starting at 9.30 am on Saturday 24th March 2018.

All coloured belts will be taking this grading so please attend lessons regularly.

Another grading will be held at Birmingham in June, and a September grading is likely be held in September. No dates confirmed yet though.

The very next day –  Sunday March 25th is the date for the English Championships at the Worcester Arena. Events to be entered include patterns, sparring and Tag team sparring.

Red belts need to attend TWO championships between their black stripe and black belt grading.

The Black Belt grading is held at the Bristol Academy in April 20-22nd.

Please note that we won’t know times and dates for the grading until a few weeks before the actual grading!


The TI World Championships are being held at the Barclaycard Arena Birmingham, July 21-22nd 2018, again lots of events that can be entered including Tag Team sparring and Pattern team events, see for details closer to the event.

The second black belt grading of the year will be held in October 19th-21st. Red belt/Black belt sessions will be held in the September/ October.

Hopefully that will keep you all busy in your quest for Tae Kwon-do success!
