It has been a busy month leading to the 114th Tam Taekwon-Do grading. Sahyun Tam has been dividing his time coaching his team to the World Championships in Italy and preparing his students for the black belt and colour grading.
Three days upon returning from the successful championships, the colour belt grading was held at Lidcombe dojang.
All student turned up eagerly for the first grading held in the new dojang. Most TaekwonKids were graded by Sabum Mayumi, whilst the adults were tested by Sahyun Tam in a separate room. Some children were slightly nervous but to reassure everyone, this is a natural human reaction. Having seventy six students in the dojang might be a little scary for the little ones. However, they did well once they stepped onto the mats. Thank you to all the assistant instructors who passionately helped the students in the final preparation for their big day.
Well done and congratulations to the following:
