Fall Report, and the next big thing?

The 3rd Annual Blue Wave Black Belt conference was held this past weekend at Killington Ski resort. It was a fantastic weekend. With over 50 participating black belts, we had a lot fun, learned a lot, trained a lot, and even had a chance to use the very heated outdoor pool. We will be back in this location next year, same time.

The Kukkiwon recently announced two new Poomsae created specifically for Competition. One of them is geared at younger practitioners, with a lot of jumping, spinning and double kicks. The second is geared at more mature practitioners, is still very technical, but a bit less bone jarring. Master Tom Chase, head instructor for the Randolph Blue Wave has a video link posted on his blog showing the two forms if you want to check it out.

Also, take a look at the Bradford Blue Wave blog. They recently added an interesting post on Ki and Taekwondo.

My blogging has taken a back seat to some other priorities lately. I hope that I am working on the next step in taking the Blue Wave Community online. Interested in helping? Email Me.

Lastly, the Blue Wave Taekwondo School Blog has turned 1 year old! October 30th, 2006 was my first post, and now 12 months and 75 posts later, its Happy Birthday to us!
