The UKTA’s first National Course and Black Belt grading of 2020 took place at Sport Wales National Centre on March  6th – 8th.   

This memorable event brought together over 100 of our UKTA family, including all four Grandmasters, Grandmaster John Williamson, Grandmaster Michael Prewett, Grandmaster John Taylor, Grandmaster Gary Miller and ten of our UKTA Masters.  

Grandmaster Williamson, Grandmaster Taylor and Grandmaster Miller covered all aspects of Taekwon-Do starting with Fundamental movements working through all 24 Patterns, Sparring, Power, Flying Technique and Self- Defence.  The course finished on Saturday afternoon with a demonstration of Tong-Il by the UKTA Masters and a presentation of certificates for recent achievements.  

Thank you Mr Darren Johns 5th Dan and Mr Michael Barker 4th Dan for hosting/organising a memorable event and thanks to Mr Craig Biggs 2nd Dan for taking photographs over the weekend. View Photos
