Tae kwon do students hit new levels
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.
