Saturday May 15th was the first important date in the history of Imperial Ireland Taekwon Do Association, when its President and Secretary General of the I.T.F, Master Trevor Nicholls VIII degree, made his first trip to the south east of Ireland to conduct a master class.

The seminar was well supported by the students of Imperial Ireland, who were extremely eager to learn and also by members of ITF Eireann and Red Star Taekwon Do, some of whom had travelled a great distance.

The main focus of the master class was the correct use of the body to improve power and also to ensure that through correct foot positioning, maximum power could be achieved whilst kicking.To prove this point, Master Nicholls demonstrated the perfect turning kick on 2 plastic boards (equal to 5.5 inches).

Master Nicholls covered all the colour belt patterns, making corrections and encouraging students to put into practice the earlier aspects of correct foot positioning and power.

The higher grades then worked on patterns Yoo Sin and Choi Yong, with corrections from Master Nicholls.

The group which included students from 8th kup up to 6th degree, Mr Henry O''Neil (ITF Eireann) worked hard for more than 2.5 hours

A very tired, but extremely motivated group then posed for photo''s, then two of Imperial Irelands youngest students presented Master Nicholls with some traditional sporting equipment (hurley stick and sliotar) from Irelands national game; hurling.

To finish a fantastic day, some of the students who attended the seminar, spent a few more hours in Master Nicholls company with an evening meal at a local Wexford restaurant.

We would like to thank Master Nicholls for making the trip over to Wexford and for taking time out from his busy schedule to meet the students of Imperial Ireland and for passing on some of his vast knowledge of Taekwon Do.

Thank you and Taekwon.
