Club Committee & Admin Team

Chief Instructor & Chairman - Master Derek Sumner



Secretary - Mark Driscoll

Just a few introductory words from your Club Secretary concerning my Taekwondo history;


All my TKD experience has been with Livingwell, under the instruction and guidance of Master Derek for some thirteen years, having joined the club in August 2004. I gained my 2nd Dan in November 2015 - an achievement I didn’t imagine possible at the outset. This is a testament both to Master Derek and the positive support and encouragement from so many members and instructors in this very special club.


My training at Livingwell has been a little sporadic of late, due to various injuries and personal events, however, it is my intention to get back into the dojang on a more consistent basis when circumstances allow.

Many thanks Mark D. Driscoll

Administator - Stacey McCarney

I would like to introduce myself, I am master Del's daughter and started TKD when I was 5 years old. I had many achievements whilst I was at the club. My best being a competitor in the European championships in the synchron team and of course becoming a 3rd dan black belt. I have two boys now and hope they will become livingwell students soon. Living has always been a part of me and I have always been involved and updated in the background. I am currently enjoying being a stay at home mum while my boys are young so I'm in a place to be able to help the club. 


My role is club administrator and will take care of Anything admin related and membership forms/renewals. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me I will be happy to help.

Just a quick note to introduce myself.  I know most of you will already know me anyway.  I am the mum of Alex (one of the clubs para students) and Joseph (2nd Dan) plus I've recently started training myself which I am thoroughly enjoying (despite the aching muscles!).


I'm now going to be assisting Master Derek and Stacey by dealing with the administration of competitions so please feel free to email me with any requests and queries regarding competition entries or amendments.  I will be liaising with Master Derek and Stacey so if I can't answer it, I'm sure they will help.


I'm looking forward to catching up with you all and cheering on all our Livingwell students at the upcoming competitions!


Kind regards Karen Hutchings
