    Talking Baeng Taekwondo Tournament
    Hi Everyone

    A few pics from Baeng's Taekwondo Tournament this past weekend where she won the 11-12 42-46kg group, and she cheated as she's only 10

    Initial thread over here , first time I've used Twitter by mobile too.

    First day was for kids aged 5 to 12, around 800 fighters were there from about 20 different gyms.


    Pre fight warm up.


    Final score from the first fight, very close, and the girl she beat, beat Baeng 8-1 last month.


    The Final. No points scored, but a hard kick to the butt.


    Coash gives final tips for the last round, leading 5-2


    "I am the champion", sadly no Queen being played


    Dad looking awfully proud

    A lot of the pics were too blurred, I'm going to need a new camera!

    Cheers

    Chris

    That's awesome! Congrats!

    Martial arts is such a great way for a young lady to build self esteem (especially when they can beat up the boys!)

    She used to be so skinny it was scarey, nothing but a mop of hair and match sticks, but she's grown so fast that she's now too big (no fat there either) to fight in her own age group!!!

    how do they score? 2pts to the head and 1 to the body?
    Yup 2 and 1. They have four judges , three must score a blow for it to count. So it's not just about hitting , but hitting hard enough and clear enough that judges see and hear that it's a firm strike.

    Yup she's already told one boy in her class to back off before she knocks his teeth out. He probably thought she was kidding till she took her medals to school to day

    Thanks everyone for the congrats, hopefully we'll be able to share some more wins soon

    Cheers

    Great picture, glad my 12 year old step daughter didn't go the same route. She would be kicking my butt if she did.

    WTF is the competitive standard that is used here. There are no other competitive sub styles of Taekwondo that I am aware of.

    I've not seen any sign of ITF here, it might be more pravalent with adults but all the kids seem to do WTF.

    Well up early this morning , family all ready to roll, Twitter set to the home page of my mobile

    Cheers

    Another win, pic to follow, final was a walk over so no smile on the podium. Shame as I was stand in coach for this one as we had several of the gym in action at the same time so I was "Stand in" , ah well I guess my first coaching win will have to wait

    Sounds like a tournie next weekend, muist be the Tkd Season

    Congratulations to all of you and good luck to her this weekend
    Thanks PB
