    Amazing results from the Australian National Taekwondo Championships

    Mega congratulations to our amazing sparring team. We did something very special at Nationals in the past 2 days. Our simple team of 9 gladiators strapped on their armour, dove into their matches head first, heads held high and placing their best kick forward as their flashing pads glistened in the Bendigo Sports Center's lights.

    Please help me to congratulate our valiant team:

    - Dilan who valiantly went down in his 1st round match, but showed his class in the 2nd and 3rd rounds out scoring his opponent. Alas his 1st round left too big a deficit to recover from. But what a comeback!

    - Mayra who revisited her opponent from the State championships, managed to avenge her prior defeat to win the national title.

    - Ethan who was a totally different fighter and delivered the most stunning cut kicks to win 2 matches and the national title. He also won the prize of a pair of Mooto Gloves for being fighter of the day.

    - Hamish who totally blew his opponent away to win his national title

    - Sarina who fought a stunning first round to defeat her opponent (she manages to always send someone out crying) and then again met her foe from State Championships the awesome Olivia, went down to her but ended up National title runner up

    - Chris Issac who drew a very strong opponent from city west taekwondo, in his first round match, was confidently scoring and troubling his opponent when he accidently caught a kick in his eye hence could not continue. It was a great performance and i shudder to think what he could have achieved if not for this incident.

    - Daniel Woodcock who used he powerful style and excellent defensive movements to get himself through 2 matches to the final, alas the fighter from Koryo Taekwondo was very aggressive and Daniel picked up a foot injury that hampered him in the final. Coming back from 8:2 down he managed to get the score even at 8:8 with 30 seconds to go. What a gutsy performance just to achieve that as the Red Dragon supportive team were going mental for him to get just 2 more points. In pursuit if the points his opponent managed 4 more and Daniel achieved national titles runner up.

    - Chelsea who won through to her semi final to achieve a brilliant bronze medal

    - Lastly Luca dominated his division (after weeks of fasting so he could make his weight) by winning every match through 20 point gap. A very dominant performance to win him the national title.

    Big thanks to our amazing team, Adam Hopper for his amazing coaching (and let's not forget he drove the whole way by himself), Chris Kubisch for his support and ability to get past security, Chris Barton for managing the team and ensuring everyone was ready, the parents for their wonderful support and good humour (enough stories about Hawaii Belinda), special mention to Rick Karvouniaris for getting us started on this road, thanks for all your knowledge and excellent support of our team laying the right foundation, and lastly to Jeff Crane for his wisdom and many last minute items needed for the tournament. Jeff we are starting to fill that notebook!

    I sincerely hope all students can feel immense pride in this as our little club is starting to achieve big things. We want all our students to grow from this and look forward to sharing our stories and motivation this brings us to everybody.

    Bring on 2018!

    For 2017 there are also changes with our governing body, Formerly it was called Sports Taekwondo Australia (or STA) the governing body has also changed it’s name.

     

    It’s now known as Australian Taekwondo.

     

    There is also a change in the Registrations for 2017. No longer will we have tiered Memberships based on age, we now have 1 flat fee for all students regardless of age.

    What an amazing year and Supporting Chloe Saxby

    Hi all,

    2016 has been an amazing year for Red Dragon Taekwondo. 
    Classes have been filling or full, to the point we have placed waitlists on certian classes.
    We have just graded our largest number of 1st Dan in the History of the Club (14) as well as added a new 3rd Dan to the ranks. We have also had great success at competition level for both Sparring and Poomse, boasting numerous State Champions as well as sucess at more local competition level.

    To top it all off we mamaged to get our faces on TV and had a small part in promoting Taekwondo for the Olympics. Our Sunrise appearance was definitely a highlight for the year.

    As we come to a close for 2016, we look at all we have achieved and can say we should all be very proud.
    For me personally I can say it's been a very tiring year as I have been somewhat stretched, but despite that I am still loving every second of this adventure.

    I am looking forward to finishing our classes with a bang this week, as well as the Christmas Party on Saturday. We give out Student of the year awards on Saturday and also plan on getting very wet (bring your water pistols).

    If you have not RSVPed already for the Christmas Party, please do so ASAP. The invitation and instructions on how to do so are HERE.

    The Holiday Class Dates are also released, see full details HERE.

    Lastly those wishing to pay Yearly Fees, the details for that are HERE!

    I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season. Looking forward to an amazing 2017 as we continue to grow and hopefully put some smiles on students faces as they continue to strive to succeed!

    We hope you can spare a moment to dontate to a charity we are supporting, Chloe Saxby's Story is an unfortunate one but perhaps we can help make a difference. In lieu of Christmas presents to the Instructors, we are asking if people can give a few dollars to this cause and let us know that you did. This is the best gift you can give and will mean way more to our Team.
