Hey everyone, please find the schedule posted below for September 2013.
If you have been curious about trying out the competition side of our sport, I am currently looking to bring new athletes aboard the Petrolia Competition Team. As long as you are driven, and are willing to give 100% and have fun, you could be the next athlete representing the team at a national level Please talk to me at the school or contact via email if you are curious! The competition season is about to get underway so don’t hesitate! The energy and hard training of Sport Taekwondo has proven to increase work ethic and discipline in all walks of life – not only the taekwondo mats but at school, home, in everyday goal setting and such. Hope to see more of you try out for a spot on the team!
Attention all members,
Please find the August 2013 Class Schedule at the following link below. Note the time change for Thursday’s Competition Class, as well as a few cancellations due to holidays etc.
Billy S. finishing his Red Belt Test on July 4 with a high-flying, jump side kick break. Great work man!
A small team of our P.C.T. athletes just returned from the 1st Black Belt Selection Event for the 2014 Provincial Team this past weekend in Mississauga. The event was run very timely, organized, & athlete-friendly by the Ontario Taekwondo Association, with 116 matches finishing by 7 pm! While not the results we hoped for, these events are a training tool and a way for us to gauge the rest of the year and what needs to be worked on and such.
Billy, competing in his first-ever provincial black belt competition, had a great showing – effortlessly winning his first contest 12-0 by the end of the 2nd round. Second match, Billy faced the current national team member for his weight division, a competitor in his 9th year of provincial/national competition. Billy was able to connect with a 3-point head kick but the referees removed the points due to a grabbing penalty. The match ended 0-9 in favor of the opponent but considering he is still a rookie, great debut performance from Billy who takes a well earned bronze medal in the Junior Bantamweight (-51kg) category.
Lauren took a silver in the Junior Lightweight (-52kg) category – Lauren had a slower start than usual but came back pulling off a 15-11 victory in her semi-final match against a new opponent, but a strong finish to the match with two back-to-back head kicks. In the finals, Lauren took on an experienced & accomplished opponent of a much taller stature and was holding her at a 0-1 close score until getting brushed with a head kick to lose a close match, closer than the score showed. In the Senior Women’s Bantamweight (-53kg) division, Lauren was also defeated in a close match by an experienced opponent, but takes bronze with the semi-final exit from the bracket.
Emilee and Jewelian faced each other in the finals of the Junior Female Light Middleweight division (-59kg) with Jewelian taking a close victory in the sudden-death overtime round after a 1-1 tied match to finish with the gold medal, while Emilee receives a silver medal. Emilee suffered a hamstring injury during the match leaving her unable to kick without pain afterwards but fought in the Senior Women’s Featherweight (-57kg) division anyways, however was unable to secure a victory despite a valiant effort. Jewelian went on to compete in an Exhibition match defeating a Female Heavyweight competitor (+68kg) 10-0.
Great work everyone, these type of games serve as a training tool and now we can develop the rest of the year from here. Thanks to the Ontario Taekwondo Association for a great event and positive experience for the athletes & coaches!
