Taekwondo competition success

Last Friday,  Sarah K (Year 9), Poppy (Year 6) and Adam (Year 3) were at UEA for a Junior Taekwondo competition – and they came away with a haul of medals between them! Poppy took the Gold for Patterns and the Silver for Sparring;  Adam scooped Silvers in both Patterns and Sparring in his category and Sarah also won Silver for Patterns. As a green belt, she was the highest ranking competitor at the event and was not eligible to compete in the Patterns category.  Congratulations to all three pupils!

Why our pupils aren’t to be messed with

HOHS pupils have been learning Taekwondo this term.

This Korean martial art combines combat techniques, self-defense, sport, exercise, and in some cases meditation and philosophy. In Korean, tae (태, ) means “to strike or break with foot”; kwon (권, ) means “to strike or break with fist”; and do (도, ) means “way”, “method”, or “path”.

Thus, taekwondo may be loosely translated as “the way of the hand and the foot.”
