The Taekwondo Dragon Club held its first Promotion Tests for 2011 on Saturday 26th March at St. Martin’s College. Fifteen members passed their eligibility test that was carried out the week before.

Yellow Tab (9th Kup)

Antonio Privitera, Joseph Portelli, Zack Ebejer and Ruby Ai Young

Yellow Belt (8th Kup)

James Aquilina

Green Tab (7th Kup)

Christian Sant and Deborah Caruana

Green Belt (6th Kup)

As from February, Sabomnim Formosa started to teach at St.Aloysius College following a successful demonstration that was held during the month of December at the college’s gymnasium. Sessions are held every Monday between 14:45 hrs and 16:00 hrs. This brings up the number of branches up to four under the umbrella of the Taekwondo Dragon Club with sessions held at Pembroke, Kirkop, Swatar and B’Kara. Currently Sabomnnim Formosa is trying to open another branch in Marsascala.

In the meantime Shania Maria Magro and Lynsey Fenech are training regularly to participate in a cadets tournament that is going to be held on the 20th March in Sicily. For Magro this is going to be the first experience.
