SARAH FARTHING & KATIE ELEY TRAIN AT GB TAEKWONDO HIGH PERFORMANCE CENTRE
Sarah and Katie were fortunate enough to partake in a 2 day training camp at GB Taekwondo in Manchester. The pair joined the USA para team, GB athletes and a handful of UK club players in an intense camp consisting of sparring drills and test matches.
Making use of both KPNP and Daedo, the girls had the opportunity to try out a variety of techniques with their training partners with a focus on clash and clinch work. As well as training in the main hall, they were invited into the impressive strength and conditioning room where they were taken through a 30 minute recovery session and hip activation to prepare for the next sessions.
On the final day, Sarah and Katie had the opportunity to put their hours of club training and skills into practice in their test matches - both feeling the burn with 5 minute rounds!
It was a very insightful 2 days and the girls were very grateful of the opportunity to share a hall with some of the best Taekwondo players in the world not to mention no.1 world ranked para athlete, Amy Truesdale.
