2016 NY State Taekwondo Championships yields Rochester TKD Qualifiers

 The 2016 New York State Taekwondo Championships screamed forward with a 700+ field of athletes from across the state. Our own Eli Wiegand led the pack with a 3-0 record in sparring with his first match ending in  12-0 victory. His sweat and effort cleared him for a gd metal in the 10-11 year old green belt division. Ben Rosero lost a heart breaker coming back from a 0-6 deficit in round one and charged forward with a nail biter that was just short with a 14-12 loss earning him a bronze metal. Older brother finished the pack with a 12-0 win stopped in the second round earning him a gold metal.

All competitors earned the right to advance to the nationals in July 4th weekend 2016.

Coaches Dr Timothy Wiegand and Dr Spencer Rosero coached the team with great results. Yells from the crowd cam from Rebecca Rosero, Dr. Irene Perillo and Josiah Fujimura followed by a supportive crowd from the Rosero clan.

CONGRATULATIONS ONE AND ALL!!! 

 

School Winners Advance 

March 15th 2014 saw our very own Jacob Fujimura (Adult Black Belt), Spencer Rosero (Jr. Black Belt), Ben Rosero (Jr. Red Belt), Rebecca Rosero (Jr. Blue Belt) compete in the 2014 New York State Taekwondo Championships (qualifier for 2014 USA National Championships, San Jose, CA).  In some closely fought matches Jacob saw Bronze (forms) & Silver (sparring), Spencer - Gold (forms), Silver (sparring), Ben - Gold (sparring), Rebecca - Bronze (forms) and Gold (sparring). At back drop on Queens College in Flushing, NY (New York City), 1,000 athletes gathered from across the state to test their skills in the annual qualifing event that chooses athletes to advance to the nationals. During black belt sparring the "Daedo" electronic scoring system was used for the first time replacing the "Lajust" electronic system.

Ben advanced in a overtime period by beating his opponent past the 3-3 third round and scored the first point in sudden death. Jacob saw a full division in forms and was successful in presenting two forms (Taegeuk Eight & Koryo) to advance. Spencer topped the forms division by advancing past others with a superior scoring. Rebecca showed her skills in her first state event.  Both Ben and Spencer have placed at NY States twice and attended nationals last year.  Jacob has placed three times and traveled to nationals twice.

We congratulate them for their preparation, dedication and outstanding results!
