Tae kwon do stu­dents hit new lev­els

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

TAE Kwon Do stu­dents in Dim­bu­lah have shown off their skills and kicked them­selves up a level.

Stu­dents at Rhee Tae Kwon Do (RTKD) Dim­bu­lah Cen­tre at­tended Ac­tion Night last Wednesday which was one of four to be held this year.

Dim­bu­lah branch in­struc­tor Phil Quayle said it was a suc­cess­ful night.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to all stu­dents who at­tended Ac­tion Night and those stu­dents who were graded up to the next level.” he said.

“Train­ing in the Mar­tial Art of Rhee Tae Kwon Do of­fers chance to its mem­bers to not only earn self de­fence but to step up and take on chal­lenges that seem in­sur­mount­able.

“Through reg­u­lar train­ing with stu­dents fo­cus­ing and giv­ing 100 per cent a black belt can be achieved. It’s re­ward­ing as an in­struc­tor to watch stu­dents grow in con­fi­dence as they fine tune new skills.”

He said Rhee Tae Kwon Do was the first and big­gest mar­tial arts school in Aus­tralia which was estab­lished in 1970, and is cel­e­brat­ing 48 years of oper­a­tion this year.

“Founder and fa­ther of the art, 8th Dan World Mas­ter In­struc­tor Chong Chul Rhee, vis­its Far North Queens­land four times a year and it’s al­ways a great honour to spend time with such a great leader and unique Aus­tralian,” he said.

Table­lands in­struc­tor Gaye Tay­lor said black belt in­struc­tors from the Table­lands, Cairns and Weipa at­tended a din­ner with Mas­ter Rhee in Cairns on Saturday night. For any en­quiries about RTKD Dim­bu­lah Cen­tre con­tact in­struc­tors Phil and Gaye on 0428 935 357.
