    Taekwondo Canadian Junior Nationals ~ Dartmouth Nova Scotia Our local school, Island Taekwondo Academy was pleased to have 2 students as well as owner Tom Girardin in attendance. This was the first national level competition for both black belt Alex Trithardt and colour belt Rachel Aucoin.  The competition was tough, but Rachel proudly brought home silver in forms and a bronze in sparring. Both students drew the names of strong, seasoned, opposing competitors for their fights, so it made for a positive learning experience regardless of the outcome. Mr. Girardin had the distinction of refereeing at the Canadian Nationals at Royal Military College in Kingston Ont., earlier in April and the pleasure of returning to work with his former club, Whites TKD who hosted the Jr National event. Referring at the junior level is just as intense as the senior because these kids are awesome athletes and are the ones who will represent Canada in the future at Olympics. Winners in several black belt divisions will compete next month in Korea at the World Juniors. For more information on Olympic style Taekwondo training contact Island Taekwondo Academy at 334-0562
