Master Dale Eagling pioneered Taekwondo in Tasmania in 1971 and our clubs have enjoyed strong suppport in the state since that time.

Training for 2014 will pick up from where we left off in 2013. 2013 proved to be a very successful year for the club with class sizes increasing in every club throughout the year. Our tournament program for 2013 was very successful with our biggest team for many years competing at both state and National Level.
Our calendar of events has been updated for 2014 for all dates that are relevant to training for the year, make sure you mark them in your diary. Members will receive the club newsletter via email / mail and it will be available for download by mid January.
High performance training will continue on Wednesday nights at our Moonah centre and resume on Wednesday the 5th February. Training will lead into the different competition events planned for the year and attendance will be compulsory for those members wishing to continue on to State and National competition for the year.
For all our members think about what you want to achieve this year from your training.. Set yourself a realistic goal for the year and set your mind on acheiving it. Always remember that success is a journey, not a destination. All our instructors will be there to assist you in acheiving your aims. We wish you well for the year ahead.

2013 - Dale Eagling Memorial Championships
The 9th Annual Dale Eagling Memorial Championships was held on Sunday the 15th of November. The Memorial Championship is our favorite event for the year and has again been a favorite amongst club members. Compeition this year was a very high standard and gave players the chance to display the skills they have achieved throughout the year. The competition is an event for all members to have a friendly competition with no pressure, an event to enjoy and sample the true benefits of Taekwondo without the pressure of a full competition. The club championships focuses on traditional Taekwondo style events and does not include sparring. Events include: Poomsae, Creavtive Poomsae. Jumping high kick, multi station kicking events, artisic expression and breaking. Again the senior jumping high kick competition was a crowd favorite with a hotly contested field. For second year in a row the high kick record was broken by Brandon Servant with a 2.410m jumping front kick. Please click on the link below for results. Results...
New Venue For Kingston Club
After more than thirty years operating in the Kingston Beach Hall the time has come for us to relocate the club. With the development of the Kingston Beach Hall as a centre for art in the precinct it has become increasing hard for us to maintain regular classes. As the centre develops the demand for art display time will increase which will mean that classes will face increasing disruption to our timetable.
We have been working with the Kingborough Council for some time to find a new home for the club. The Council has generously offered us space at the Kingborough Sports Centre in our normal Tuesday timeslot.
Our new training venue will be the Aerobics Room at the fitness centre located on the Lower Floor of the Kingborough Sports Centre. Please see the map below for location details. Access to classes will be the main entrance to the Fitness Centre at the rear on the Sports Centre. Car parking at the rear of the centre provides easy access to the Fitness Centre and the Aerobics Room.
Classes will commence at our new venue on Tuesday 2nd July 2013 at our normal times
DALE EAGLING TAEKWONDO AWARDED APPROVAL AS A "CHILD SAFE ORGANISATION"
In 2010 Dale Eagling’s Taekwondo received and was presented with an Approval Certificate from Child Wise as being a “Child Safe Organisation”. This has been a major task for the club over the last 5 years in reviewing their Member Protection Policy and, in consultation with Child Wise, have now had their Policy Approved.
Our club is the first organisation in Australia (private or public sector) to receive such a certificate. The benefits to the club are immeasurable, as it promotes a better understanding within the community and above all provides SAFE places for children to learn the art of Taekwondo. For more details please contact Child Wise on www.childwise.net or speak with Hugh or Angela Eagling about the club's experience.
