Cartref Ni has supported Tom since July 2016. He has a real interest in the Martial Arts and was supported by Staff to find a suitable class.
Tom immediately demonstrated a passion for the Sport and has worked hard to develop his skills
This is Tom’s Story –
I chose Taekwondo a Korean Martial Art and the class is in Deeside Leisure Centre.
My Instructor is Darren Richardson.
My Training involves exercises to improve fitness, Sparring with a partner, where points are scored and Patterns, a sequence of movements simulating fighting techniques.
I have passed Gradings with ‘A Class Pass’ Certificate Awarded and won medals in Competitions.
In addition to my dedication to the physical aspect of the Art I have been learning to count I Korean Hanna………Dul……….Set………. as I need to know how to respond to commands from my Instructor.
At first I was supported by Staff to ensure I was comfortable with the surroundings and now I attend the Class alone.
I have made many new friends and go to their Social Functions where I am always made welcome.
I am determined to get my Goal of Achieving Black Belt status.
The Club have nicknames on the back of their Training Tops so look out for Timebomb Thomas…………
