Term One in Review 
Although a “short” term, it has been quite busy. Greg was appointed Head Coach for the Poomsae
Team that represented Australia at the US Open in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is one of the biggestcompetitions in the World, and the Australian Team did quite well, winning one Gold, two Silver and eight Bronze medals. MTC results included a Bronze for Bronwyn in the Individual Final.At other International competitions CarolineMarton won a GOLD medal in sparring at theGerman Open. This is a very prestigious event,and Caroline became the first Australian to win aGold medal ever at this competition. At the followup event, the Dutch Open, younger brother Jack Marton won a Bronze medal, together with
“brother in law” Safwan Kalil. Sister / wife
Carmon made it to the quarter finals at both everts, but no medals this time. However, this holds all of our Knox branch members in good stead for theWorld Championships to be held in Mexico nextmonth.
Caroline, Jack and Carmen
The World’s Greatest Shave event was held on the 17th March, together with the club sparring
championships and the Victorian Sparring Championships at Box Hill Aqualink. Results from theVics can be found on the TKD VIC website, but from the club Championships we had Zac Thaisenwith a Silver medal, and Stephen Knott and Christian Thaisen with Bronze medals.The Shave event was a great success with Mrs Rose Choundhary from Dandenong branch doing theshaving and hair colouring. It was good to have a professional hairdresser doing all of this for theLeukaemia Foundation, and we raised several hundred dollars on the day.

Grading Results
Again, as it was a short term, the grading numbers were down, but it was a good standard. Any
members who were “nearly” ready to grade should keep practicing over the holidays, as we willhave another “mini” grading in week four. As it is an eleven week term almost all colour belt
members should be planning to grade in term two.
