Another Year of action in 2015! With our events well underway and a growing membership base, I give you our Calendar for this year. The main event for us as a Club will be the World Championships fundraising, along with attendance by five of our own to the London event. Other notables include the various Tournaments, Seminars and Workshops and of course our Grading dates too.
You'll notice we've reduced our Testing Opportunities to Three this year to allow us all to maintain the standards we set and to give us the flexibility to give due effort to the tasks at hand without spreading ourselves too light. It's a busy year but I look forward to our continued success.

New Club Opening!
Tong-Il Taekwon-Do is growing, just in time for our Mid Year Intake! July 22nd will see the Club expand with the New Belconnen Branch opening. Congratulations to 3rd Degree Regional Instructors Mr John Sutherland and Mr Steve Wood who will take up this appointment and head the new Dojang. They're already causing quite a ruckus and enquiries have been flowing thick and fast so it appears the Belconnen Branch is already assured it's success. In conjunction with Fusion Martial Arts Academy, we're now able to train at any of 4 locations - Barton, Belconnen, Macquarie and Holder. Look to the website at http://tong-iltkd.com.au/index.php/training for further information. As stated on the site, times for the New Belconnen Club are 6:00pm to 7:00pm Tuesdays and Thursdays, Hope to see you there!
Promotions and Appointments!
This has been some time coming and my apologies but I wanted to make mention and congratulate Mr Darren Sexton and Kim De Poorter on their promotion to First Degree and of course Mr John Sutherland and Steve Wood for their sucessful testing to 3rd Degree.
With the Belconnen Branch opening, some internal restructuring has come about. Mr Paul Bailey and Darren Sexton are appointed as Instructors for the Barton Dojang to help cover for when I'm unable to make it due to work. Mr John Sutherland and Steve Wood are founders of the new Belconnen Dojang and their primary appointment will be in looking after this Branch. I hope you'll all attend in support whenever you're able as I will in helping the Branch get up and running.
Thanks and Taekwon!
