80 participants and more than 200 spectators took part in the Boston Kuk Sool Won Grand Annual Demonstration last month.
To showcase their sport and promote the club, members of Boston Kuk Sool Won hosted the demonstration and invited parents, friends and colleagues to watch the club in action.
The Mayor of Boston, Councillor Colin Brotherton, Mrs Kate Wainwright and Boston’s Portfolio Holder for Sport Councillor Yvonne Gunter were part of the audience on the night.
Sonny Boyall, a 4th degree black belt and Chief Instructor at the club, said:
“The atmosphere was really good. I think some of the audience were unsure what to expect but people really got into it. The children were absolutely fantastic; they had been practicing for five weeks prior and everything went really well on the night.”
Kuk Sool Won is a traditional martial art which promotes fitness, self-defence, stamina and discipline.
Mr Johnson, a parent of one of the participants, said:
“I’ve seen national demonstrations, and this exceeded any national demonstration I’ve seen. Everything was so well put together and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
Boston Kuk Sool Won classes take place at Boston High School on Monday’s and Thursday, and cater for all ages and abilities. The club was founded in 1995 and has recently secured funding through Active Lincolnshires Partnership’s Sportivate programme to provide more sessions for 14 – 25 year olds.
