Il Shim Taekwon-Do Melbourne
goes outside the Dojang

Mr and Mrs Harper have enjoyed taking Taekwon-Do outside of the traditional dojang these past few weeks!

Mrs Harper was invited to Keysborough College to run sessions for their Year 10 students during Pathways Week. Capably assisted by students from amongst the ranks of our WTF friends, Mrs Harper was able to introduce the students to a variety of kicking techniques, hand techniques, as well as some basic Korean terminology. The students did well in acquiring some new skills in a condensed timeframe!

Mr and Mrs Harper were then introduced to an enthusiastic group of drawing students from the Latrobe College of Art and Design. Students were immersed in a discussion of the history of Taekwon-do, and encouraged to find links between the discipline, practice and challenges of Taekwon-do, and those in Drawing. The students were given demonstrations in both patterns and free-sparring, as well as the art of breaking boards. Using the demonstrations for inspiration, the students then unleashed their creativity onto canvas in a frenzied drawing "round robin"! 
It was certainly very different to any other TKD lesson we have taught, but definitely one of the most enjoyable!

A huge thank you to Latrobe College's Honor Bradbeer and Keysborough College's Melissa Naganivatu and Lynda Portelli for the opportunities to share the Art of Taekwon-do with your students!
