Spring training calendar for taekwondo athletes

Some changes to spring practice times

As the autumn season is still coming to an end, we are already looking to the future. Konala's spring training calendar has been edited. Due to the characteristics of our sport, the size of the groups, the age distribution and the distribution of belts live constantly, which forces us to check the training calendar again every time the season ends. Some of the changes are due, for example, to the fact that during the fall two groups practicing at the same time have grown so big that the gym is starting to get small for both. Some, on the other hand, have their roots in the instructors' scheduling issues. For the sake of clarity, the group in which the enthusiast should train at any given time is listed below.


Group Level Hobbyists
0-3 Babies, toddlers and toddlers See the descriptions in more detail on the groups' own pages
3-6 Rudiments Beginners, one sleeve label owners
Sequel Two sleeve badges and from the yellow belt upwards
7-14 Rudiments White and yellow belts
Sequel Yellow belts with one or two green ribbons
Advanced Green belts and higher belt values
14+ Rudiments White and yellow belts
Sequel Green and blue belts
Advanced Red and black belts
Match All Everyone from yellow upwards who are interested in the match
Elite A competitive team striving for international success
Business series Buff Everyone who is interested in practicing movement sequences

On Sunday 27.12. kick-ass entertainment and sweat cranberries are offered in the gym, in the spirit of a traditional mid-day training camp. The camp is intended for all enthusiasts over the age of eight, regardless of skill level or age. Usually, the camp has had a large turnout for both adults and children.

These enthusiasts will be sent a separate e-mail and told during the exercises. You can check the price lists for belt tests from here.

New teacher values for taekwondo athletes

More teachers for TU11
More teachers for TU11

On December 3, 2015, the values of the black belt were increased in the TU11 gym. Pauli Raivio and Hannu Vikström completed their 4th dan and are now TU11's newest teacher-worthy black belts. In the same exam, Tanja Raivio increased her belt rank to 2nd dan. The test started with the basic technique section, after which Hannu and Tanja held a yellow belt test for the Kalajärvi group as part of their own belt test performance. From Kalajärvi, we returned to the Konala gym for the wrestling part of the belt test, where sweat and contact were not spared.

Teemu Heino, the holder of the belt test, was very satisfied with the test takers' performance and hard work in the tests. Big thanks also to Petteri Kauppinen, who we will hear more about very soon, as well as Emilia Lahte and Jan-Erik Wargelin, who helped in the struggle part of the test.

Indoor competitions 27.11.

Taekwondo athletes' next indoor competition is approaching

As usual, indoor competitions are held at the taekwondo athletes' hall on the last Friday of the month, i.e. 27.11. Like last time, we collect names on the list in advance for adults, B-junnu and cadets, so everyone can check if there are opponents of a suitable size or scalps they are aiming for.

We therefore ask that you promptly notify one of the coaches either of your participation or of your absence. The list is updated as needed. The children of our own club do not need to register. E, D and C2 competitors will not be published, there will certainly be enough of them.

Participation is free for everyone.
