This is a special night where P.U.M.A. members are honoured for their achievements. At this prestigious event they celebrate receiving their awards to applause from an audience consisting of P.U.M.A. Masters Gayle / Ogborne / Senior grades and family /friends. We are very pleased to welcome seven new Degree grades, Bethany passed with a Credit and gained the best adult female colourbelt grading award and Jack won the Heart and Soul award for the determination, effort and indomitable spirit he displayed in achieving his grade. Well done and congratulations to all, see below for full results:

You will see from the photos that there was a lot of red being worn. This was in honour of Becci (whose favourite colour was red) the young daughter of Rachel one of P.U.M.A.'s Instructors who sadly lost her fight against cancer. During her time in hospital the family received help and comfort from the "Abbies Heros" charity for which funds where raised via a draw and donations.

Northern Taekwon-Do Camp 13/15-07-2018

This year's camp was held again at Bank House Farm, Hulme End. Derbyshire.    After the thunderstorm on the Friday night all was well with 150 people enjoying dawn to dusk sunshine.    A perfect weekend for getting wet, water fights and swimming (not rain) and as you see from the photos a lot of people did.    Although there was some training and fitness on camp the main theme was fun, fun and more fun.    Thanks go to Jenna for dealing with the admin and to our team of School Instructors and helpers who made it a weekend to remember.    Like the saying goes ‘ it's teamwork that makes the dream work’.
