The COVID – 19 pandemic had put a significant hold on local and international competition, but, much to our excitement, Australia had its first nation-wide squad training in Melbourne, hosted by Sasung Danny Kordanovski, on 26th November after three years of lockdowns and restricted travelling.
This day was also an opportunity for students to be selected for the World Championships held in Kazakhstan 2023.
Black belt students Elaine Li, Grace Wee and Kevin Quach represented TTM on this day and gained a fantastic opportunity to train with other black belt students from Australia after three years of physical absence.
It was a long day of training, starting with patterns at 8:30AM, then moving onto sparring, and then finally finishing off at 4:30PM with power breaking and special technique. Competitors and instructors from all over the state who have years of World Championship experience in all areas of competition were also able to share and pass on to up and coming competitors.
The results for the World Championships Selections are expected to be announced in January 2023. Wish us the best and stay tuned for more news.
