Dan gradings ITF-Belgium

July 4th 2020

The first dan gradings of 2020 were supposed to be done March 22nd…and then Covid-19 came….

So the first promotions of this year were postponed to July 4th. The candidates had to wait a bit longer, and the circumstances were not ideal, but they did a great job!

Were promoted:

  • III°degree: Koen Hoerée (Taekwon-Do Club Gent), Amber Dellaert (Taekwon-Do Club Gent)
  • II°degree: Sophie Ardenoy (Ge-Baek), Kevin De Vree (Ge-Baek), Claude Duyck (Duke’s Warriors ITF Taekwon-Do), Kurt Roelandt (So-San), Hans Van Lierde (Ge-Baek)
  • I°degree: Maximilien Boyens (Taekwon-Do Club Gent), Rune Schuddinck (Taekwon-Do Club Gent)

Update on restrictions Covid-19

As from June 8th on, gyms can reopen the doors for indoor training sessions, however with the same restrictions as before: e.g. without contact, without the use of dressing rooms, toilets, showers, in groups of maximum 20 persons (instructor included), without the use of general used material, with respect to social distancing (except for children up to 12) etc.

July 1st more will be possible again: contact will be allowed again, groups can extend to up to 50 persons, changing rooms will reopen etc. Of course it’s still necessary to wash the hands, use desinfectant materials and so on.
