535299_10150817876719378_1070248941_nAs a club we are very involved in University events such as Any-Body Month and the Alumni Sports Weekend where current student teams compete against past students.

This year we’ll also be taking part in the University of Nottingham’s inaugural Martial Arts Week. We’ll be working with several other martail arts clubs from within the University and giving our own free taster session as part of the event on Tuesday 5th February.

Club Socials

Two of our biggest social events are the Christmas Meal at the end of the Autumn term and the Summer Ball at the end of the year. In the past we have had murder mystery and rat pack themes and are always a lot of fun! We’re a very active club and organise many other socials throughout the academic year such as film nights, BBQs and the odd paintball trip.  We also have a weekly trip to Mooch (on campus) after training on a Wednesday.

Competitions

The club competes in the British Student Taekwondo Federations (BSTF) National Championships each year as well as competing in the TTAs two major tournaments (both Individuals and Teams). This is a national event which we have hosted in both 2008 and 2012. The club has been very successful in competitions over the years and students form the club have competed at several international competitions. Our full list of honours can be found here.
