Nice video

A nice video here with a few of the best sport Taekwon-Do athletes in Europe.
Katya Solovey announced her retirement this week, which is unfortunate for the rest of us as she is pretty much the most exciting and technical fighter out there. I imagine this means she'll be doing more of the seminar circuit, so there's a silver lining. Anyway, the vid:

National Champions.

last weekend we sent a small team to represent HX at the I.N.T.A. national championships. The competition was, as usual, incredibly well run.

Michael got the silver in a large patterns division against some quality competition. Mark, James and Michael were all in the same sparring category, -80kg red belt, and did the dojang proud as James won two fights to take home bronze, while Mark won a tough final battle to take the gold.

Sam took silver (and about fifty heavy side kicks into his guard) in the heavyweight final against the indomitable John Moffitt. John is going on to represent Ireland in the World championships this weekend, all at HX wish him the very best of luck.

HX instructor Mr. O’Reilly (yours truly) took gold in the -80kg black belt sparring division for the second year in a row.


Next up is the NITA Dublin Open on November 2nd, followed by the RITA Irish Open on the 30th.
