A report from Phoenix Taekwondo’s ELEMENTS Charity Theatrical Taekwondo Stage Show.

It’s brilliant hearing about activities our member clubs are involved in. In this article we hear about Phoenix Taekwondo’s big theatrical charity stage show.

Phoenix Taekwondo delivered the ELEMENTS Charity Theatrical Taekwondo Stage Show at the Amey Theatre in Abingdon-on-Thames, Oxfordshire earlier this year.

Altogether, Phoenix Taekwondo raised £2,500 for the club’s selected charity, Be Free Young Carers – who support young carers across Oxfordshire – through the summer show.

Chris Pearson from Phoenix Taekwondo commented “It was a fantastically successful night with 120 martial artists of all ages on stage in front of an audience of 300, including the new Mayor of Didcot. The show contained 21 scenes ranging from Taekwondo kicking, spectacular wood destruction – breaking over 80 boards – Taekwondo Dance, Little Dragons bombarding the audience with balls and mass audience Taekwondo participation.”

The performance took place on Saturday 14th May and was set to 23 music videos projected onto a back screen with the giant Phoenix logo on the stage.

Chris added “Obviously we are not a drama or dance group, and this event was just regular Taekwondo students achieving something unique and special!”

The show took the club and its members six months to prepare, with almost all Phoenix students participating. ELEMENTS was performed by normal Taekwondo students training in their regular classes.
