A husband and wife team, Master Leong Yong Wah, 7th Dan black belt and Madam Yeap Swee Bee, 6th Dan black belt will be taking charge of the school’s pioneer Taekwondo Club.
As a kick start and introduction to the new club, a demonstration was organized at the school compound. A team of 15 Power Sport Taekwondo members took part in the event. They were greeted with overwhelming cheers and loud applause at the end of each item. The crowd, comprising of several hundred school pupils, were awe-struck by their performance.
The demonstration team have trained relentlessly every Sunday from 5.00 pm to 8.00 pm since its formation in early 2006. From wow-ing parents and taekwondo members with their eye catching performances during gradings and championships, this young team was so impressive that they were invited to perform before VIPs in several functions.
