The First UKTA’s National Course and Black Belt grading of 2022 was hosted by Grand Master Williamson in Elgin at the Moray Sports Centre on March 4th – 6th.   

During the course our Grand Masters John Williamson, Michael Prewett, John Taylor and Gary Miller covered all aspects of Taekwon-Do including Fundamental movements working through all 24 Patterns, Sparring, Power, Flying Technique and Self- Defence. 

On the Friday evening, Mr William Hampson VI promoted to 7th Degree Master after performing pattern Tong-Il and an exciting breaking demonstration in front of our Grand Masters and all course attendees. Congratulations Master Hampson.

There was also an opportunity for some of the attendees to take their Dan promotions in front of the Grand Masters on the Sunday.
