2019-Poomsae Tournament - Results

 

USAT and AAU Nationals

More kudos for our Blue Wave athletes competing at National Championships this week. In UT, Master Sue Cronin's poomsae scores marked a new personal best, and Mr. Sayles fought hard and came close in a rollicking Men's Ultra division. In FL, two awesome young Burlington athletes put in strong performances in their respective sparring divisions (and scored some pretty sweet TKD swag!). Mr. Barclay and Ms. Sayles fight today, so please direct all your Blue Wave spirit and cheers toward them in UT!!!

When we stated the Blue Wave team had put in an impressive performance on the national stage this year— we weren’t kidding! Check out this video of Krister Barclay, bringing it to the mats with talent and skill to win his first fight against the number six seed in his division! (Very impressive! And, on a stage!) Way to represent, Mr. Barclay!!!

 

 

Burlington Blue Wave held Junior Match Games!

On Friday October 20th the Burlington Blue Wave held junior match games for juniors 15 years old and younger. Match games are similar to a "scrimmage" - no divisions or medals, just a chance to experience some some matches with scoring. This was a BVT Scholarship Fund raiser!
