The first UKTA’s National Course and Black Belt grading of 2023 was hosted by Mr Darren Johns VI in Cardiff on the 3rd to 5th of March. 

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 Sunday some of the attendees took their Dan promotions in front of the Grand Masters on the Sunday.  Full results of the grading are listed below.
