Message from Emma Deakin (Instructor)

To all my students, families and friends at Chesterfield TKD and Little PUMA’s.

As April draws to and end, having spent the entirety of it in lock down, I would just like to sincerely thank you all for your support of Chesterfield TKD. Doing ‘stuff’ on line is well out of my comfort zone, but I have been overwhelmed by how you have received the challenges and training regimes that I/we as a New Century family have been setting.

I know many of you have continued to train hard at home, evidenced by your pictures, videos and comments. Some of you have sent videos of your patterns for me to give feedback on. I hope this has been of use. It really is encouraging to see and know that you will fit straight back into the swing of things when we finally are able to return.

I am regularly trying to update the Chesterfield Tae Kwon Do Home Learning site to ensure you have material to continue to progress towards your next grade. All grading line work, patterns, and theory can be found under the relevant themes in the ‘topic area’ of the page. There are some videos to follow and also word searches and crosswords to test your theory.

The New Century Home Learning Page also has valuable resources including practical demonstrations of patterns and line work.

I feel very humbled that many of you have continued to pay, despite not being able to attend classes. If there is anything that you would like me to do in addition to things put in place already, please just let me know, I will do my best!

In lots of ways this Lockdown period is bringing our ‘Northern Crew’ together and strengthening friendships of those who train in the area. It has been lovely to see you guys join in with talent shows, post up your lockdown bakes, climb ‘Snowdonia’, fly over toilet rolls, design your own sparring gloves and draw your instructor…. the list goes on. I know that when we are all able to return to training, social times will also be treasured…. lets keep fingers crossed for camp!

Once again, THANK YOU! You guys make Chesterfield TKD a fantastic School to be a part of!

Watch the news, read the papers - it's true and sad to see that violent crimes exist everywhere... Prepare yourself for the unexpected and protect yourself, your family and those around.
