Summer fun for taekwondo athletes

Martial arts tudents take a break in the hot weather

The kids of PTA soaked in the sun and had a lot of fun on the big water slide set up at the local club’s annual summer barbecue.

It was a slippery slope for the kids of Parksville Taekwondo Academy in Parksville’s Community Park Saturday and the smiles said it all as they soaked up the sun and had a blast on the big slip ‘n slide at the club’s annual summer barbecue.

“It was a blast …we had about 100 people turn out (and) the slide was the highlight of the afternoon for sure,” PTA Master Brett Fee said.

Speaking of water, “this has definitely been a watershed of a year,” confirmed Fee when asked about the local club’s strong season,  pointing out PTA has competed in five tournaments this year thus far and hosted the Woo Kim Island Taekwondo Championships, the largest Taekwondo tournament held on Vancouver Island in some 20 years.  

“As a club, we also won first place in the 2011 Canada Day Parade, and we sent two athletes to a 15-day, high-performance training camp in Korea last Month — Master Brock Fee (Senior Instructor), and Alison Kells.”
