Three taekwondo demonstrations at Vybíralova Primary School
On Thursday, 29th September, we performed three taekwondo demonstrations for schoolchildren at Vybíralova Primary School. The demonstrations were intended for the complete first grade and because it is a large school, the audience was very large in all three cases. The success of the demonstrations is evidenced by the fact that it brought a large number of people to our recruitment group. As we have already mentioned, there were three demonstrations and thus the themes in the photographs are repeated. Take a look at the 137 photos and the video edited by Alex Mach.

Successful demonstration of Taekwo-Do for schoolchildren
On Tuesday, 27th September, we presented a Taekwon-Do demonstration to the first and second grade schoolchildren of the Hloubětín Primary School. Because the local gym is very small, we divided our presentation into three demonstrations with slight variations. The photos are therefore interlaced and the techniques may be repeated. In addition to the photos, you can also watch the video footage. The aim of the demonstration was to attract more people interested in our order in BPA Hloubětín, which is directly adjacent to the Hloubětín Primary School.

Taekwondo men and women are ready for the devil
The last competition of 2022 is upon us and the hall of the sports centre in Prague Řepi can look forward to 322 competitors from 23 schools from the Czech and Slovak Republic. Surprisingly, we managed to break the Sonkal Open record for the number of competitors set in May. The number of countries will be standard and it looks like we will set the standard in the number of rings, which will be 6 again on Saturday! And what will be better than last year? Mainly that we don't have to deal with any covid measures, taping of arm bands and keeping track of how many people are in which area of
21.11.2022 / Sonkal's taekwon-do camp
Return to south bohemia
A lot of water has passed in the rivers since our last visit to Borotin in South Bohemia. Of the current camp participants, we could count on one hand the number of people who remember the last time they attended in 2008. A lot has changed in those 14 years, but definitely for the better. Throughout the camp we were accompanied by unusually warm weather, which tempted us to explore the area during the afternoon breaks. Even though the camp was for five days, they passed as quickly as the water mentioned in the introduction. And we can look forward to the Easter return, which we will make m
30.12.2022 / Black belts promotions
Sunday for black belts
The last event of the Czech Taekwon-Do ITF in 2022 was the examinations for the technical dan, i.e. black belt, on Sunday 12th December. Over 30 adepts appeared before the examination committee of the Czech Federation and among them were four members of Sonkal. The first to take the exam for I. dan was Katerina Vitechkova for whom it was the culmination of the life of the coloured belt. Katka passed the exam without any difficulties and after receiving the official certificate she will be able to exchange her red belt for the monothematic but beautiful black one. Among the candidates for
30.12.2022 / National technical seminar with Grand Master Hwang Ho-yong (IX. dan) & masters
120 participants
On December 10, Brno belonged to taekwondists from all over the Czech Republic on the occasion of the national seminar. The seminar itself was divided into three separate blocks. The first, in the morning, block was led by Grand Master Hwang Ho-yong and in its introduction he repeated the most important theoretical basics of Taekwon-do - the meaning of the word Taekwon-do, the theory of power and or horizontal levels in the execution of techniques. The Grand Master not only reminded the facts, but also his sense of humour was given space. This was followed by the students practicing individ
30.12.2022 / Technical course with Master Jerzy Jedut (VIII. dan)
Two-day training marathon
The last weekend in November belonged to taekwondo in Stránčice under the baton of Polish Master - Jerzy Jeduta. Compared to the previous years, both days of the seminar were tuned more into drills and exercises for sparring. From introductory games and warm-up exercises, through interesting combinations to strengthening exercises at the very end. During the seminar there was also time to practice basic techniques, patterns and self-defense. However, this time they were neglected in the program and got the upper hand again in another part of taekwondo. Master Jedut came into the semin
29.12.2022 / Christmas Taekwon-Do demonstration
Taekwon-Do at the Plecharna
After a two-year break, we had a pre-Christmas show at the Plechárna na Černém Most. And just like in 2019, this time it was also on the occasion of the Christmas exhibition. During the hour-long demonstration, there were full demonstrations by students from five of our gyms (Vybíralova Elementary School - Černý Most, Věra Čáslavské Elementary School - Petřiny, FZŠ Chodovická - Horní Počernice, BPA Hloubětín and Jablíčko Kindergarten - Velké Přílepy. Demonstrations of the lower bands were interspersed with performances of the red and black bands. The spectators could s

13.12.2022 / 15th Serbia Open
Serbian mission
On Friday 18th October we set off from Prague for our first participation in the Serbia Open, which was held for the fifteenth time in the second largest city of Serbia, Novi Sad.11 competitors in two cars set off on an 800km long journey, but thanks to the non-stop driving on the highways of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Serbia it was not as bad as it might seem from the kilometres. With a few short breaks, we arrived at the venue around 6:30. Accommodation, weigh-in and dinner at the hotel followed. In the evening we still managed to walk around the city centre, which is very nic

Pre-Christmas taekwondo devil's flick
The hall of the sports centre in Prague Řepi hosted the seventh year of the Ataxon Taekwon-Do Open - Devil's Cup. After last year's covid edition, it was very pleasant to deal only with ordinary operational matters, and not how to protect the participants and comply with the ever-changing measures. But the past is the past and let's get on with the year just ended. With five days to go before the entry deadline it was looking like a more intimate number of competitors, however the weekend and the last day was a crushing conclusion. There were 323 entries but only 291 competitors entered th
24.11.2022 / UK Open 2022
Sonkal in the British Isles
In 2019 we went to the competitions in Scotland for the first time, which were organized by the United Kingdom Taekwon-Do Association. We really liked the competitions then - friendly atmosphere, solid organization and interesting opponents. The following three years we had to postpone our participation because of Covid 19. This year it finally worked out and our choice fell on the UK Open, which is held regularly in November in the town of Guilford. This town of 100,000 is located southwest of London. It is worth mentioning the actual sports centre where the races were held, because the avera

National championship for the first time in Ostrava
This year's national championship - Czech Republic Championship was held in Ostrava for the first time. Sonkal was represented by 23 competitors after two medical corrections. The whole team was very well prepared and the performances were at the top level! In the competition of 22 other schools of the Czech Taekwon-Do Federation our competitors did great. In this case it is not only about the second position, but also about the ratio of the number of competitors - our 23 versus 89 at GBHS. The difference was in the final count three gold medals :-) In addition to the second place trophy
