Hello. We are the Taekwondo students from Nomad Taekwondo, who are lucky enough to represent Great Britain in local, national and international Poomsae Tournaments. It is a huge honour to be able to represent our country at tournaments across the world. This comes from a number of years of dedicated training. On average, we train for 15 hours per week, often more when we are preparing for the larger international tournaments.
We are aged between 8 years and 17 years, and currently at our level there is no central funding for our sport, so we are required to self-fund our participation in the events, and all associated training costs. Most of us have been training with our local club for over 4 years, and have been part of the Great Britain squad for 2 years. We are proud to say that we consistently medal during the tournaments that we have participated in, often with individual, synchronised pairs and synchronised team silver or gold medals. As we are getting older and more experienced, many opportunities are becoming available to us.
The target we have set should support 12 of our GB squad players for the next 12 months. This will cover the costs of our travel to all international tournaments, additional training sessions at the prestigious Head Quarters of Great Britain Taekwondo in Manchester, tournament fees, athlete accommodation whilst competing, Competition Doboks, and tracksuits. It will also fund any additional costs for sports therapists. Every penny raised will be invested directly to the athlete.
If we are able to reach our target we will be able to invest more in our training, we will all be genuinely grateful for anything that you can give.
We would like to thank you for your support, whoever you are, from whichever of the communities that we are a part of, thank you for helping us to achieve our dreams. We hope to make our local club, Nomad Taekwondo; our Great Britain squad; our families and our local communities proud of our achievements.
