Elite Taekwon-Do Academy’s Annual Summer Camp was held between July 7th and 10th and proved to be a great hit with the camp attendees. Over the course of the four days students worked on fun kicking drills, Self-Defence, Sparring Competitions, and Patterns Competitions.
In addition to the Taekwon-Do action, participants also played lots of games such as Dodge Ball, Noodle Wars, tag etc.
One of the Camp highlights was our trip to beautiful Loughshinny Beach where Sam Cummins showed everyone the “Smugglers Cave” he had discovered.
As usual, everybody had a great time and at least one student, Ava Kearns was disappointed that the camp only ran for one week. Ah well Ava, theres always next year.
Many thanks to Matthew, Clare, and Barry for their help in leading the camp and also to Pipina, Sarah, and Keeva for the wonderful cakes they made for everyone.
Summer Camp almost here.
Wear your shorts and t-shirts
Bring a packed lunch and plenty of water each day (NO FIZZY DRINKS)
Keep spare clothes and towel in you backpack for our visit to the beach (fingers crossed for great weather)
See you all Monday 7th from 9.50am
ETA Loughshinny’s “Students of the Year” were awarded recently during our last class of the current season. Awards were presented to the students from each of our classes who have demonstrated commendable Attitude, Attendance, and Ability over the past year.
In our beginner to yellow belt class the award was presented to Robbie Swarbrigg, in our Junior Intermediate class our winner was Emilia Zivkovic, and in our senior class awards were presented jointly to Carly Pagett and Carl McGrath. All of these members helped set the benchmark for our other students for the future and their effort and commitment was greatly appreciated.
Our “Competitor of the Year” was Samy Lamari, who won many tournaments this year in both Taekwon-Do and Kickboxing, the highlight being his Gold Medal at the European Championships in Italy in April. Very well done Samy.
