Kingdom Black Belt Academies (KBBA) instructors and students took part in a seminar in Glasgow with “First Grand Master” Rhee Ki Ha and Grand Master Paul Cutler.
Grand master Rhee is one of the original Korean masters, but has been in the UK for many years now and has the distinction of being the first person promoted to that rank by the founding father of Tae kwon do – General Choi Hong Hi. Although he is now 74 years old, his excellent health would be the envy of many far younger people, and his mind is still sharp and clear, and of course his knowledge and teaching techniques are of the highest order.
KBBA participants were:
Peter Scott (5th dan), Robert MacGregor (4th dan), Stuart Reid and Darren Adams (2nd dan), Martin Reid, Colin Cunningham, Steven Scott and Mike Ferguson (all 1st dan)
Coloured belt students:
Bryan Jeffrey, Shanny Bookner, Laura McIlvaney, Morgan Scott, Harris Anderson &, Kieran Reid
KBBA instructors continue to take every opportunity to better themselves and their students, having already attended a 3 day course with the 3 grand masters of the ITF technical committee in May.
Upcoming events include a major competition “The Gathering” in Perth on 8th September and a coloured belt grading in Lochgelly the following week.
If you have ever considered learning a martial art or even if you just want to start something to keep you fit in the long term these classes could be perfect for you.
If you or your children would like to get involved in a positive and beneficial activity feel free to come along.
The first lesson at any of the classes is free – so come along and give it a try – you have nothing to lose!
KBBA instructors run classes in Kennoway, Windygates, Methil, East Wemyss and Lochgelly.
