Our students were amazing at the Sports Taekwondo Australia – National Championships, held in Melbourne 2013!

Tamzin won a gold medal and is the National Champion for 12 year old girls in her weight and age division. Tamzin has been doing Taekwondo for 4 years and has successfully defended her title as National Champion for 3 consecutive years, she trains between 3 to 5 times per week.

Ashley won a gold medal and is now the National Champion for 12 year old girls in her age and weight category. Ashley has been doing Taekwondo for 3 years and trains 3 times per week at the Police Citizens Youth Club Ipswich (PCYC).

Harshie won a bronze medal in his 10 year old boys age and weight division. Harshie has been doing Taekwondo for 3 years now but this is his first year of sparring and competing so this is an exceptional achievement, he trains 3 times per week.

William won a bronze medal in his 7 years old boys age and weight division. William has been doing Taekwondo for 3 years now and trains 3 times per week.

Broddick won a bronze medal in his 7 years old boys age and weight division. Broddick has been doing Taekwondo for 3 years now and competing for 2 years, he trains up to 5 times per week.

Head Coach Mr Kevin Donaldson said all six students attend other classes through out the week to assist and mentor other students. Fitness plays a big part in competing so you can also see them partaking in other events most recently the Ipswich Park to Park. Most of our students would not be able to attend these events if it were not for the assistance from people and businesses in the local community who’s generous donations help towards the cost of getting to these competitions. Most recently JP Richardson donated $3250 to help Tamzin attend the national championships to defend her National title for the third year running. We are always looking for new club members to join us and local businesses who would like to assist us with donations so as we can send more of our outstanding students to more competitions.

If you would like to know more about PCYC Ipswich Tan’s Taekwondo or learning to spar please feel free to call Kevin Donaldson on 0429 609 180.
