Term 3 and a tournament in Darwin

Considering the recent winter temperatures in Sydney have rarely gone above 15 degrees, how does a trip to Darwin sound?

This year's Region 1 Tournament date has just been announced for Saturday 16th September. Although we are part of Region 3 (NSW & ACT), all Australian Federation members (you) are welcome to attend and participate in the Region 1 Tournament. Please see the SMDK Facebook page for details, or speak to me during the first couple of weeks of the term. Once we have an idea of how many people are interested I will start arranging extra training sessions in preparation for the trip. We will also use the time in Darwin to train at the local dojangs and see some of the unique offerings you can only experience in the NT.

The tournament will consist of sparring, hyung presentations, team presentations and board breaking presentations. There has been an (unofficial) challenge laid down to the Sydney dojang from members of the Bees Creek dojang for the team presentation ... this is your opportunity to represent Region 3 and show those 'Bees Creakers' what Sydney is made of.

This term we are also opening the doors to new students in the adult class. If you know of any friends and family interested in joining our community please pass along my details. Places are strictly limited, so make sure they contact me in advance.

See you back at training on Wednesday 19th July.

Your dobok; a reflection of your training

With all the recent promotions it is important students wear the correct uniform. Students are welcome to buy material to sew on themselves, however if you would like to purchase a new pre-trimmed uniform, please speak to Master Wyles before/after class. 

Your dobok is your personal connection to Korean history and tradition. Translated literally, do means ‘way’ and bok means ‘clothing’. A dobok is the clothing you wear when practising the ‘way’ and in this case, the ‘way’ is Soo Bahk Do. The white colour of the dobok represents purity and our commitment to avoid bloodshed.

Action and thought are inseparable. Your appearance (outside) and attitude (inside) are closely linked. When you look your best, you usually feel good too. Maintaining a well-kept and clean dobok is of great importance, reflecting your attitude towards the art. It is best to own at least two dobok so you always have one clean, ironed and ready to use.
