The British Taekwondo Control Board Gibraltar held its Tercentenary Senior and Junior Kyorugi
Competition on June 2004. Kyorugi is Korean for sparring. Prior to the competition the junior members took part in a spectacular exhibition. The exhibition was divided into two parts. The first part was dedicated to self-defence where the participants demonstrated a varied repertoire of self-defence techniques in diverse situations where a student was attacked by a single assailant, followed by two assailants and finally by an armed assailant. The second part of the exhibition was dedicated to destruction techniques where the youngsters demonstrated their ability in this field on single and double targets.
As far as the Kyorugi competition was concerned it was an overwhelming success with the participants demonstrating their fighting ability much to the satisfaction of everyone present. The competition culminated with a thrilling bout between Alexander Trinidad and Dean Chipolina, which had everybody at the edge of their seats.
Ernest and Edward Garcia (3rd Dan) organizers of the event were justifiably proud of their student’s ability a worthy reward to their coaching and preparation. All participants were presented with medals and Gibraltar Taekwondo Association T-Shirts in recognition of their hard work.
