Martial Arts in South Dublin, Taekwondo

Mats and shields and stuff

{jcomments on}Our first consignment of kit arrived the other day, a lovely big pallet of red and blue mats, air-shields and focus mitts.
18022010s.jpg Just like Christmas, only much much better. Even Santa would have a hard time getting that lot down the chimney.

Apologies for the photo quality there, my phone camera lens is scratched to a fine mist and there's never a proper camera to hand when you need one.

There's a second pallet out there somewhere in a container, straining under the weight of  six 5' heavy bags. Christmas part II, or part III if you count real Christmas.

In the beginning.... there was a kip.

{jcomments on}I found these photos from when we first started tearing into this place.

I didn't know I had them, but I'm glad I found them. There's a nice slice of history here.
And even though there's still a ton of work left here before we can open, these pics serve as a reminder of just how daunting the job was at the start. What were we thinking when we took on this kip?

Ah no, it'll be great when its finished. I'll just keep hanging on to that thought.....
