View all articles

To assist with the national agenda supported by Public Health, the NHS and other statutory organisations, Sport England direct funding to initiatives which are aimed at increasing participation in physical activity in every sector of the community.  One of the programmes through which Sport England do this is Sportivate.

Trenic Taekwon-Do Academies, as a member of UK ITF and BTC, the NGB (national governing body) for Taekwon-Do in the UK, work with schools, colleges and community groups, as well as directly in their clubs, to support increased participation. One of the particular initiatives is the BTC ‘Touch Gloves’ programme.

With full intention to support the initiative, Yiewsley TKD Academy fulfilled the criteria to host a six week ‘Touch Gloves’ programme. The aim of the course was to allow the opportunity for women to take part in a physical activity that includes the fundamentals of Taekwon-do’s dynamic kicking and punching techniques. Trenic coaches Mr McAvoy and Mr Nicholls have been working closely together to deliver the course in such a way that all women, regardless of age, shape, and ability could dig deep and train hard in both a fun and engaging environment.

The six week course started on June 13th and has proven to be a great success, receiving positive responses from all in attendance. With the course soon coming to an end, we would like to congratulate all those that have taken part and encourage the ladies to continue their training in one of our full time academies.
