Online Grading (June 2020)

The Reid family from our South Normanton School are the first students to grade online. Obviously we would have all preferred to have done it live but unfortunately Covid-19 has temporarily put a stop to that. Our adapted syllabus and system worked extremely well with all the family putting 100% into their performance. All were successful with Mr and Mrs Reid achieving OLG-M (On Line Grading-Merit) and their son OLG-P (On Line Grading-Pass). Mr and Mrs Reid also won at the P.U.M.A. Online Championships.

P.U.M.A OPEN INTERNATIONAL - 8th February 2020

Our Officials:

New Century Tae Kwon Do students had a fantastic day at the PUMA Open International 2020! The tournament showcased some exceptional talent from many different organisations, and all our students should be immensely proud of their efforts regardless of whether they bought home a medal or not. Those who won medals thoroughly deserve ‘bragging rights’ as the standard of competition truly was of International standard.

What made the day/weekend extra special was the team spirit! All NCTKD members (and parents alike) cheered on each other and were genuinely pleased for each other when medals were won. We certainty have an awesome team ‘Up North’ which I have no doubt grow in strength and numbers!

We as Instructors couldn’t be more proud of our students! Well done and THANK YOU to all who supported the event.
