Report by Master Virginia Dionisi.
Sunday March 8th.
In Brussels we celebrated the Women’s Day doing what we love: Taekwon-Do! I was invited to conduct a seminar in patterns and three step sparring at the school Red Force, leaded by Bo Sabum Costel Grigoras. We started the seminar with a light warming up, followed by training in fundamental movements, exercises to improve side kick, balance and to develop core muscles. Afterwards we continued with some patterns (depending on the grades of the students) and technical explanations on purpose and applications of specific movements. To finalize, we analyzed together three steps sparring and the different possibilities of its execution.
At the end of the session, I gave a short testimonial together with two of my students (Andreea Musca and Leen Walraeve) that are members of the national team. We explained when we started to practice Taekwon-Do and we showed the more important medals we have obtained at World and European competitions.
To close the event, I talked about the importance of the different roles we may have in the club and during our martial art life. And, Mr. Grigoras had a hidden special surprise for all ladies: he gave a red rose to everyone!
Yours in Taekwon-Do,
Master Virginia Dionisi
