Test for I.-VI. dan

Day -2 (Friday 22/7) - I come earlier again, I was looking forward to it whole year, but now my mind is a bit confused. I am afraid if this camp will be good enough compared to last year´s which was supreme. We come (together with rest of PraguePardubiceVrané team) before lunch (we would be there earlier if I would listen to my car and put some fuel in it) to sweat through our common clothes because Martin Zámečník told us to join end of training. Free afternoon, no cell phone, no e-mails.….I cycle through forests around camp finding it very hilly, feeling that I won´t be able to kick well even at the beginning of the Camp.

Day -1 (Saturday 23/7) - we practice on GBHS school training camp, lot of kicking drills, one hour dedicated to throwing techniques. Un

I had opportunity to interview one very pleasant taekwondoist during Nitra Cup 2011. She also took part in Sonkal open 2011 with small group of her fellow taekwondo practitioners from Taekwondo Academia Slovakia. I speak about 16years old Theodora Szőcs.

She started taekwondo because of her parents at age of 7, but wanted to quit after one year. Fortunately her parents persua

Interviews 2011

Quest was simple (and Ondra Vrábel was its creator) – make an interwiev during Bohemian championship or Czech Open. I thought about some Swiss taekwondist from the beginning, because I knew others doesn´t want to use english so much. Peter Regan would be good choice, but then I got idea that talking to Sandra Guggisberg might be interesting. She is kind of big small women of Swiss taekwondo for me (I hope it sounds nice because it is meant that way :o) ) . We spoke drinking beer before Czech Open, but together with all the chat with 2 boys from Sonkal (just passing their I. Dan test), Radek Kolář and rest of Swiss team the interview would not have any meaning :o) So I did it through internet. Enjoy.

Tests from I. up to VII. Dan took place in Nymburk during evening after International Course. I was somehow allowed to see tests from IV. Dan above that were officially closed.

Let me write few subjective comments. Zdeněk Vavruška was the only adept for IV. Dan and despite of fact that he will be 40 this year (I had to ask him again after test, because it was hard to believe) he did great job (in

Special training session for blue belts and above with Marek Svitek (14.00 - 16.00)

Next seminar for higher belts passed and because I was not the one (even though trainer´s name differs just by two letters) to lead it, let me write something about it.

I promised to bring my brother (Marek Svitek, nicknamed Tatanka) for our training for months (ok, realist would say for years). He started to practice kickboxing just few months after I have started taekwondo, did thousands of very colorful training with trainers of high standard (pioneers of kickboxing in Czech republic) and fought probably hundreds of fights in nearly all kickboxing disciplines also both on European and World level. I want to say at the beginning, point was not to teach taekwondoists kickboxing, but to take some corrections and to fight (we sparred under our sport rules, but in my opinion sport sparring i

I spent last weekend before Christmas on winter camp of Sabom taekwondo school that is led by my friends (friends from time when we practiced as blue belts together in TYO Prague II) Aneta and Martin Procházkovi (they were together as long as I remember, but Aneta changed her surname just before two years or so).
