Having fun, enjoying new activities, and gaining badges is part and parcel of being a Cub Scout. In recent weeks, Cubs in Putnoe have been having a great time learning some Taekwondo and they have all gained a badge as well.
The Putnoe Cubs teamed up with Bedford TKD School of Taekwondo to work towards the Martial Arts Activity Badge. Claire Dixon, Putnoe Cub Leader said: The smiles on the Cubs’ faces were fantastic when they got their certificates and badges.
It helped that Adrian Felice, Instructor from Bedford TKD School of Taekwondo, had been a Cub himself as a kid. Claire is one of his students, and when she asked if he would come to help her Cubs learn some Taekwondo, Adrian was up for it straightaway.
“Putnoe Cubs were great, they were full of energy and enthusiasm, and I was particularly pleased with how easily they understood the moral philosophy of Taekwondo – Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable spirit – and also the ’emergency use only’ of self defence.” says Adrian.
