Grand Master Class and the 5th Inter-School ITF Taekwon-Do Invitation Tournament

The Hong Kong Original Taekwon-Do Council successfully held the Grand Master Class and the 5th Inter-School ITF Taekwon-Do Invitation Tournament on 27 and 28 December 2014 respectively. We would like to thank you Grand Master Nicholls and Master Sng from Singapore for conducting the seminar, as well as members from Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and China for their great support to the events.

On 26 December Friday, Grand Master Nicholls arrived at the Hong Kong International Airport and were welcomed by members of the Hong Kong Original Taekwon-Do Council, together with Master Sng from Singapore, Instructor Andy Low and Sharon Chen from Malaysia and Instructor Andrew Kung from Australia. Welcome dinner was then held in Tuen Mun with our honorable guests.

A black belt examination was held on the morning on 27 December Saturday with a total of 8 examinees took part for their 2nd degree to 6th degree examination. The afternoon was followed by the Grand Master Class conducted by Grand Master Nicholls and assisted by Master Sng at Tai Hing Sports Centre, Tuen Mun. There were around 140 Taekwon-Do students participated in the intensive training. Grand Master Nicholls being the chief instructor explained thoroughly about the basic techniques and the application for different individuals. He also emphasized the correct execution of several basic kicks like front kick, side front kick, side kick, turning kick and back kick. We all paid much attention during the seminar and learnt a lot from Grand Master Nicholls and Master Sng.

The day ended with a dinner with Master Nicholls and coaches from different countries. It was a warm and delightful evening in which we had cosy and friendly talks in a harmonious environment.

The Invitation Tournament was held on 28 December Sunday with participants, spectators, family and friends from Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and China witnessed this spectacular event. We were pleased to invite Grand Master Nicholls being our guest of honour, together with Master Sng from Singapore, Instructor Andy Low and Sharon Chan from Malaysia, Instructor Andrew Kung from Australia and Instructor Alvin Wong from China as our honourable guests. Grand Master Nicholls delivered opening speeches and thereafter souvenirs were presented to our guests. Matches for power breaking and pattern were held in the morning followed by individual and team sparring in the afternoon. Four rings were being heated up immediately with excellent skills and techniques being displayed by the participants.

All participants demonstrated their high level of sportsmanship during the Invitation Tournament. They all strived their hardest in the sparring and embraced immediately after the matches, showing their true friendship with each other. The Invitation Tournament was then concluded by the prize giving ceremony by our coaches. Thereafter, members of the Hong Kong Original Taekwon-Do Council and coaches and friends from different countries together saw Grand Master Nicholls off at the airport.

The Hong Kong Original Taekwon-Do Council would like to take this opportunity to thank you again Grand Master Nicholls, Master Sng, Instructor Andy Low, Instructor Sharon Chan, Instructor Andrew Kung and Instructor Alvin Wong for their great and continue support to the Council as well as the events. Students were honoured with the visit of Grand Master Nicholls as all of them have learnt a lot from the seminar. We were all honored with the visit of Grand Master Nicholls and eager for his return to Hong Kong in the coming future.
