Cork Martial Arts award for Tommy Burns

Congratulations to Tom Burns who was honored last night at the CMAP –Cork Martial Arts Promotions awards night. Tommy received the “Community Spirit” award in recognition of his continued contribution to Taekwon-Do over the past year. He has been training (and teaching) with us in Blackrock for the past 12 years, along with running his own, very successful club in Crosshaven. At 70+ years, his effort, his commitment, his indomitable spirit, is a continued inspiration to all of our members, young and old. He is also a great character, whom nobody has a bad word to say about. You will see him at every Taekwon-Do competition, looking after his team of students, chatting, shouting support, and quite often on the otherside of the ring giving your opponent (who he doesn’t know) advice on how to beat you. Congratulations Tommy
