7.1.2020 / Christmas Taekwon-Do demonstration
Successful Christmas event
A year went by and the Christmas exhibition time has come as the final Taekwon-do quest. The positive experiences of 2018 led us back to the Theatre in Horní Počernice. Unfortunately, as we experienced at the beginning of summer holidays one feels fate changes and this option fell due to the long-term reconstruction of the Theatre. Our next choice was the Plechárna in Černý Most. First, I would like to say it was not bad option at all – interesting interior, the possibility of refreshment, the base – ZŠ Vybíralova with all the material close by and mostly the very friendly staff
24.12.2019 / National technical seminar with Grand Master Hwang Ho-yong (IX. dan) & other instructors
With the Grandmaster and the Masters
On Saturday November the 30th part of our Sonkal School set off to Brno to the National seminar of Taekwon-Do under the lead of Grandmaster Hwang Ho-Yong. I was looking forward to being there so din not mind to get up so early in the morning. We departed from Prague at about 7 a.m. which is quite early for Saturday. There were no complications on our journey and we arrived in time. We even managed to stopped at a petrol pump on the highway to have a breakfast. The seminar began at 10 a.m. after we took a group photo. I was disappointed a little for instead of immediate practising everybo
6.1.2020 / Ataxon Taekwon-Do Open 2019 / 5th Devil's cup
Nice meeting prior to Christmas
After having been re-deployed from Egypt at the beginning of December, I had the first opportunity to attend taekwondo competition hosted by our school Sonkal, the Ataxon Taekwon-Do Open in Prague. What is more, these competitions are traditionally inspired by national custom “Saint Nicholas Day”. As well as the Saint Nicholas on his way, the Saint Nicholas Cup has been always accompanied by devils. You could see evils everywhere, especially on medals and dummies as well. From my point of view, it was really nice time spent on meeting taekwondo people shortly before Christmas. Seeing al

Adventure in Moscow
On Saturday, December 14th at 7 o'clock in the morning, our Sonkal team including Ondra, Vláďa, Stepan, Kája, Ondráš, Tea, Lea and me, met on Terminal 1 near Costa Coffee. Our flight left without any delays. After we successfully changed our seats and everyone was happy with who's sitting next to them, our two and half hour flight to Moscow started, most of our competitors fell asleep as soon as we took off. Around one o'clock in the afternoon (local time in Moscow) we arrived to the Sheremetyevo International Airport and then we moved to the hotel, where we did a weight check and also pu

Sonkal in action at STM competition
On October 19th and 20th members of our school took part in second round of traditional competition STM (centre of talented youths), which took place in Nymburk. This competition was great challenge for them because the number of all participants was 290. There were 128 members of STM Prague 2 which is the one our pupils compete for. Among them were new support from Sonkal school, two Russian contestants studying in the Czech Republic, Stepan Knyshov and Vitaliya Gagloeva. The contest began on the Saturday afternoon of 19th October with the team patterns competition of the youngest. It was
26.12.2019 / SLO Open 2019
The Penguin did not spoil our trip
In a few years it´s become our custom to visit Slovenia for competition. Last years we attended the capital many times to take part in Ljubljana Open. This year, as well as the previous one, we went to try the contest of higher quality A class Slovenia Opena that took place in the town Zreče. On Friday 15th November we set off from our usual spot in Černý Most. We went by three cars and there were thirteen contestants and three drivers in them. I was concerned by linking warning light of glowing in my car and the powerless car assured me that something was definitely wrong. Fortunately,

First-graders and Taekwon-do
On October 3rd we had great opportunity to perform Taekwon-do exhibition for first-grade students of Vybiralova grammar school where we have our regular trainings. Because this school is one of the big ones and we would need a sports hall to fit all first-graders in, we performed three separate exhibitions. Besides three adults, the performers were mostly students of this grammar school. It was very interesting for the teachers to see their actual or recent students during such activity. And the series of prasing their skills was very pleasant. All three exhibitions met with a response both
24.12.2019 / Technical course with Master Jerzy Jedut (VIII. dan)
For the fifth time does not mean the same!
At the beginning of November, we attended the seminar led by Master Jerzy Jedut (VIII. Dan), let me point out we have met him for the fifth time so far. For us it is always great opportunity to visit the Czech National Union of Taekwondo ITF seminar, the training with the legendary Master Jedut is traditionally the biggest benefit. The number of not even black belts or European and World Champions has been trained by him, Jaroslaw Suska could be stressed as an example. Was there anything surprising me at the fifth seminar? As always, the training was full of new ideas, inspiring and interes
