ITF Scotland held their 2014 National Championships on 13th April at the Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in Motherwell. This year there were 455 competitors from 22 schools, including visiting schools from outside of Scotland; NE Sport Taekwon-Do (Wales), Trident Group (England), and TAE (England).
The day got under way at 09:30am after a morning umpire’s meeting under the guidance of Master Gordon Wallace 7th Degree, head of the Umpire Committee. Each set of umpire’s were assigned their rings for the day. The event started with the youngest students in the following categories; Under 7’s, 8 – 10 years and 11 – 13 years competing in Patterns, Sparring and Special Technique. And our over 14 – 17’s, 18 – 35’s and over 36 years age groups starting with Power and Special Technique, before their Patterns and Sparring in the afternoon.
This year’s tournament saw new rules come in to place for Pattern competition with all Males and Female’s being in separate divisions for their Patterns as well and the other events. This proved to be very successful move forward for ITF Scotland.
We would like to thank everyone for their efforts throughout the day, the competitors showed great sportsmanships during the competition, to the umpire’s for giving up their day to referee, and to the supporters for creating such a great and friendly atmosphere.
