Northern Camp 12/14th July 2019
Bank House Farm, Mill Lane, Hulme End

An excellent venue situated in the Peak District Park, great site (our third visit), friendly/helpful staff, and has the Manifold Inn on it's doorstep (great food). The Camp is a social get-together with various family activities, including some Taekwon-Do and lots of FUN. This year 150 camped plus 11 dogs with 22 attending with the Saturday day pass. P.U.M.A.'s Master Gayle 8th Degree rode up from Chippenham on his Triumph and thoroughly enjoyed his time on Camp. A big thank you to the organising team: Stacey, Emma, Sam, Joanne, Pete and Jenna who have put the time and effort in to make it such a success. You may have heard the saying " it's teamwork that makes the dream work" but this was no dream as the whole event was well planned. Stacey did a great job taking on the roles of admin and treasurer (all part of being a 5th Degree) backed up by a team who ensured every little detail was sorted even down to leaving the site on time and clean/tidy. Praise also to all the Instructors/Assistant Instructors who also put maximum effort into making Camp a success. Finally thanks go to everyone on Camp for making it a great family weekend. General comment was "Best one yet" (and the weather was good too).

P.U.M.A. Fight night 07-09-2019 - Thornbury Leisure Centre.

PUMA Fight Night

What a night with P.U.M.A. North (New Century) vs P.U.M.A. South and P.U.M.A. vs British Army.
The night began with several Demos including our own Olly Payne from Biddulph doing a great Bo staff musical pattern.

P.U.M.A. North (New Century) vs P.U.M.A. South TEAM results.

That's what I call a result.

A clear win for former World Champion Emma who came out of retirement especially for the fight. Both Aidan and Iden controlled the fight from the offset taking well deserved wins. Ruby and Keira fought as hard as they could against tough opponents and should be proud of their performance. I have nothing but praise for them, they are true Martial artists who during their fight demonstrated all of the Tenets of Taekwon-Do (Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control and especially Indomitable Spirit).

In the P.U.M.A. England vs British Army dual each team had eight fighters. The bouts consisted of 2 x 2 minute action packed rounds with P.U.M.A. England winning 6 bouts and the British Army 2.

An exciting and enjoyable night.
