Gibraltar Taekwondo has had a great start to 2016 with the visit of Master Gemma Biescas 7th Dan (Great Britain National Poomsae Coach), Master Elias Biescas 7th Dan (International medallist in sparring, technical and destruction competitions) and their two daughters, also Black Belts in Taekwondo, to Gibraltar.
The reason for their visit has been as a consequence of a new structure which has been proposed by British Taekwondo where both Masters Edward and Ernest Garcia have been appointed as the Regional Poomsae Coaches for Gibraltar. The role of the Regional Coaches will be to develop players and get as many as possible to elite level.
Members of the club of over a certain age/belt attended a four hour training session offered by both Masters Elias and Gemma Biescas. A three hour session was also held but this time only for Black Belts.
