South Hams Martial Arts Competition League
March 18, 2018£12
South Hams Martial Arts Competition League, Dartmouth, Sunday 18th March
We have been invited to attend the above competition, cost is £12 per competitor.
Who is it for? – All Little Dragons, all coloured belt adult and junior Taekwon-do and Kickboxing Students. For those that have competed before, but especially those that have never competed before. This competition is designed to be fun just for you. And we have only invited the South Hams MA and South Coast MA schools so that it is a small event to just give it a go.
What does a League mean? – Our competition has to be fun, so we don’t like people being knocked out in the first round like other events. This is an event for competition experience and being knocked out early doesn’t allow for more practise and building your confidence as you go. So in your group, you will compete against everyone else and will be awarded points. The top 3 will be winners.
What will you win? – We give out Gold for High Kick and Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals for the top 3 winners in the other events. Some of you may not agree with me, but I do not approve of the giving of participation medals to youngsters. I believe that we have to learn to enjoy taking part and learn about the disappointments in sport as well as the rewards for winning and doing really well, and help promote the desire and a work hard attitude to do better. I think it is good for parents to choose how they wish to reward their child for taking part or not. On saying that, I will however be issuing ‘Well done’ certificates for the Dragons to thank them for taking part.
About the venue – Dartmouth Leisure Centre TQ6 0JL, you will find on the roundabout on arrival to the town from the inland side. There is plenty of parking but it is a pay and display. Alternatively you may find some free on street parking just across the road amongst the housing. There are only a couple of vending machines so if you need more than that bring your own. Sainsburys and Lidl are on either side of the centre too. The competition is due to finish at 1pm, so you may want to take the park and ride bus from the centre into town and have an explore around this lovely historic and nautical town. Make it a day out for all the family!
If you are interested in attending this competition, forms will be given out at class.
