After 4 years of training and a gruelling 7 hour examination held in Coventry over the weekend Eleanor Kay (aged 17) from Bungay Taekwondo Club achieved a major life aim by passing her black belt.
Eleanor performed superbly in front of Grand Master Oldham and various other senior Dan grades in order to be awarded his highly coveted black belt.
She had to perform patterns, demonstrate techniques, perform free sparring and set sparring techniques, answer theory questions and submit a written thesis all topped off by performing various power destruction techniques through wood which required a great deal of practice as well as excellent technique and focus?
By passing her grading it takes the black belt tally at the club to 31 since it opened in 2003 and Clinton Gillett said, Eleanor smashed everything and demonstrated great determination and dedication, she is a humble and respectful student, but at the same time incredibly approachable and friendly to all other members of the club .
The club always needs new recruits who want to get their black belt in this Olympic Martial Art so please pop along to Bungay High School on Tuesday or Thursday from 7pm or check out the website www.bungay-taekwondo.co.uk1
The photos show Eleanor with other members of the club at a sparring session gearing up for the GTUK British Championships on 2nd April 2016.

CRT Council meets in Liverpool You may remember that I was elected to the CRT Council as a Business Boating representative at the back end of 2015. Museum of Liverpool – venue for the Council meeting. Well, today was my first meeting, this one taking place on the Waterfront in Liverpool.
I drove up bright and early and arrived in time for a short tour of the Trust’s waters at the docks which lie at the far end of the Liverpool Link. I have to admit that the Waterfront is a spectacular redevelopment, filling the gap between the Three Graces and the bank of The Mersey.
CRT Council members on tour The area is jam packed with attractions and I was particularly taken with the new statue of the Fab Four, striding confidently to the Beatles shop.
As for the Council meeting? I have to admit that I was made very welcome and the assembled members were walked through the various facets of the CRT including its strategy, recruitment and selection update the response to the Calderdale flooding, the finances and the fundraising activities.
All a high level insight into the workings of the Trust for the benefit of the numerous new Council members. Stanley Dock with a rather unlovely – Yellow Submarine! Due to the nature of the information download the communication was, on this occasion, rather one way.
However, as we approached the end the various groups represented started to ask questions from their perspective, making suggestions about future agenda items and prompting discussions – basically doing what they are there to do. I think its fair to say that most of the elected representatives were struggling to define the role they play in the Trust’s governance structure, but perhaps having the whole spectrum of interest groups sharing and challenging in the same room is the point of it.
One minute the boaters relation to The Friends is being discussed and then we are looking at the same problem from the perspective of canoeists, cyclists, ramblers, fishermen and ecologists. And so the gathering closed at 4.15 with the next scheduled for September in Birmingham, tacked on the back of the AGM.
