On Sunday the 6th of November, the second annual Feria Dueños was celebrated in Casa de Campo’s Cacique Conference Center – with one of the highlights of the day being a wonderful and very impressive Taekwondo exhibit with the participation of more than 50 kids from the La Romana and Casa de Campo communities!
Whilst all the fun and games of the Feria Dueños started at 11am, it wasn’t until 4pm that Casa de Campo’s strong boys and girls came out in force to show off their Taekwondo skills. The exhibition began with a group display with all 50 students, of all shapes and sizes performing a routine of regimented Taekwondo moves to the commands of organizer and leader of the exhibit, Arquimedes de Jesus. Next the group broke down and wowed the audience with their kicking an punching skills and finished off the show with some real live fighting!
This impressive exhibit was directed by Arquimedes de Jesus and Hector Pilier and taking part were pupils from 3 different Taekwondo schools; from Casa de Campo, the “Club de la Costa” in Central Romana and from La Romana town.
