The final exam of the season saw eight members demonstrate their patterns, sparring, self defense, board breaking and theory to earn their next belt.
This colourful success follows the impressive achievement at the Merritt Friendship Tournament.
Three members of Selkirk Taekwon-Do attended the Friendship Tournament in Merritt June 13 and brought home gold and silver medals.
Megan Price, age 8, achieved Gold in sparring and Silver in Pattern while James Price, age 12, received Silver in each discipline. Chris Price topped the group by receiving two Gold Medals.
“Attending tournaments allows you to test your skills and training against similarly ranked and aged competitors from other clubs,” said Chris Price.
“You start the tournament focused, you compete, and then you hang out and meet other kids from around BC,” said Price.
Selkirk Taekwon-Do was represented by 14 participants at the International Taekwon-Do Federation Western Canadian Championships this spring.
Held in Kelowna, approximately 400 participants from across British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan competed in patterns and sparring. Every member of Selkirk Taekwon–Do earned at least one medal and the club brought home an impressive 21 medals.
