Amazing Student Experiences

 

每年,发展信托基金都会收到来自世界各地的捐助者的大力支持,他们慷慨地定期通过学生体验基金为学生提供改变人生的机会.

Club President, Michelle Truong said “We trained for approximately seven hours per day, both outdoors and indoors, despite it raining during the whole weekend. 训练是多种多样的,涵盖了广泛的跆拳道方面,这都有助于提高U2电竞体育目前的技能. U2电竞体育会在清晨开始拉伸运动,然后在白天进行更激烈的运动,包括拳击, breaking and patterns. The attendees were also encouraged to continue training during the evening, 但在更非正式的社交场合,有黑带的指导和建议. 在周末,通过在训练中加入团队建设练习和在晚上进行跆拳道相关的游戏,团队合作也得到了强调. 也有来自邓迪大学和圣安德鲁斯大学的学生参加,不同俱乐部的成员之间的友谊蓬勃发展.

On a final note, 委员会非常感谢U2电竞体育收到的资金,这使得U2电竞体育的俱乐部有可能为U2电竞体育的会员提供这个惊人的活动.”
