When I first tweeted this I mistakenly said the British championships, a different event and venue altogether.
The event was held at the Guildford leisure centre, what a place massive with all sorts of events going on at the same time, nothing anywhere like this when I was young and free parking which in this day and age seems to be the exception rather than the rule. The Taekwon-Do was in a hall on the lower ground floor level with room for seating and 6 matted areas.
Next up is the sparing which is where it gets exciting, first Pic’s are of some 5 year olds really going at it.
Daisy; well what to say about Daisy. Her bout lasted about 30 seconds before she was disqualified for what they call head shots. To explain, in this country up until the age of 14 they are not allowed to punch or kick to the head (Daisy won’t be 14 until July) but she is in intensive training to compete for Wales in the European championships where contact to the head is permitted and she was determined to lay down a marker to the over 14 that she was coming and to beware.
