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 see a lot of special techniques, including three and four kicks and other often acrobatic variants, as well as power breaking, routines and various forms of fighting. The icing on the cake was the final self-defence scene and the breaking of roof tiles.
At the very end of the evening we awarded the most successful individuals:
- Honza Sekera for 1st place among kids.
- Jirka Faltin for 1st place among adults
- Hubert Skala for 1st place among juniors and 1st place overall in the team ranking
- Terka Simandlová for the overall 2nd place in the ranking
- Lea Rathouska for 3rd place in the overall ranking
Throughout the evening, our voluntary entry fee box was available, where we managed to collect a beautiful 9.373 CZK, which are already in Maxík's bank account (viz maxuvzivot.cz
Spectators and participants of the Christmas show had the opportunity to watch a video version of the Sonkal song, which was composed for us by Mr. Leoš Stenský, the father of Sonkal from Velke Přílep. You can watch it here on our website.
We look forward to next year's event, which will feature students from our two newest gyms - Břevnov and Velká Dobrá.
