Match Day with Bournemouth Club
On Sunday 20th November James & Tom went down to Bournemouth to take art in a Match Day with Dorset TKD, Bluewave, South Hams & New Milton TKD. The training session was run by 2 polish Nationals one of which was in the Rio Olympics.
Both Tom & James did very well, they had a match on the electronic PSS. Tom did well scoring a head shot and being 1 pint up until last few seconds which then took it to sudden death (Golden Point) which he lost by an unfortunate punch.
James put up a good fight and their match wasn't meant to have head shots as the other person had no gum shield. unfortunately a wayward kick from the opponent caught James on his Jaw - he carried on till the end of the round, but then the shock of it set in and he decided not to continue.
I am glad to say there was no lasting damage and it hasn't deterred him from sparring again - and will vow to go back stronger.
Well done Lads I am proud of you.
