New Century Taekwon-Do

Northern Taekwon-Do Camp 14/16-07-2017

On Camp at Brook House Farm, Hulme End, we had 161 people, 9 dogs and 1 hamster (never saw the hamster). A great family weekend with all ages joining in (not sure how old the hamster was and didn't see him joining in). A big thank-you to the Instructors for all the thought and planning they put in to make it such a success. The aim of the weekend was for everyone to have a good time, it included some fitness, some Taekwon-Do and a whole lot of fun.

Camp at Brook House Farm
One team challenge was to wrap up an egg using one piece of newspaper and then drop it from a height
without breaking it.

Another team challenge was to build a high structure using marshmallows and spaghetti sticks
(I don't think these Instructors are treating this task too serious).

This challenge is Pants (on your head).
