After a very difficult 18 months, with training virtually on Zoom and outside when rules permitted, Taekwondo Association Scotland (TAS) held its first Black Belt grading on Sunday 26th September at Xcite Sports Centre in East Calder. (West Lothian)
Students from TAS clubs across Scotland were present to grade to 1st Degree Black belt. Others sat degree tests seeking promotion to 2nd and 3rd degree black belt grades.
The grading was physically demanding, testing all aspects of Taekwondo including Pattern forms, 1-step sparring, 1-step semi-free sparring, contact sparring 1-on-1 and 2-on-1, self-defence, knife defence, technical kicking and power tests.
From Intrepid clubs, Mr. Scott and Ms. Dundas would like to congratulate everyone who passed their grading tests today:
1st Gup -> 1st Degree Black Belt
1st Degree -> 2nd Degree Black Belt
2nd Degree -> 3rd Degree Black Belt
Thanks from Intrepid to our grading examiner Ms. Scott and to Mr. & Mrs. Donaldson for their assistance throughout the day. ... See MoreSee Less

Many thanks to Origen Financial Services for their kind and generous sponsorship that will benefit our students. Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, the use of shared training equipment isn’t permitted at the moment. That has significantly limited our training options. However, sponsorship has enabled us to purchase additional training equipment that students will be able to use individually (or in small “bubble” groups).
It is only through the generous support from Origen Financial Services that we have been able to do this as it’s not always financially viable for each student to have their own training equipment. Our students and everyone at Intrepid Taekwondo are grateful for their support.
