Please find below a copy of the schedule for Sunday 14yrs & over.
NB. Senior Sparring schedule will be defined in the afternoon.
ITF Scotland held the first of this years Child Protection Courses at the Scottish Martial Arts Centre in Alloa on Sunday 24th February 2019.
The Introductory Course (Level 1), was presented by Mrs. Angela Barrie, ITFS’s Child Protection & Safeguarding Officer. The morning’s course saw the 36 participants work together in a workshop type format, initially discussing what Safeguarding and Child Protection are, with Mrs. Barrie offering information as to the processes of the Child Protection system in Scotland, and the role that Disclosure Scotland, and the PVG Scheme play in keeping our children safe as well as promoting safe practice within our roles as Taekwon-Do instructors.
The participants were split into small working groups, and given a number of scenarios to discuss, and put forward what should be the best practise in each of those situations. This also gave an opportunity for Mrs. Barrie to answer any questions surrounding current legislation and law.
On conclusion of the course, the participants were issued with their certificates valid for the next two years.
We’d like to thank Mrs. Barrie for her time in presenting todays course, and look forward to the next one in September (date to be confirmed). The next course will cover Safeguarding within Social Media and Internet/Online.
Also thank you to Mr. Paterson and S.M.A.C. for hosting the event.

Dear Masters/Instructors /Students
On behalf of the Taekwon-Do UK executive, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to attend our Scottish Goodwill Open Championships. This Taekwon-Do event is open to coloured belt and Black belt competitors and is designed to unite TKD schools through our Martial Art of Taekwon-Do. These championships are a continuation of our successful International event held at Edinburgh for the previous four years, with a big emphasis on fair play and light contact for competitors especially junior divisions to encourage scoring points rather than causing injury to your respected opponent.
Please note that as this is a goodwill event and we want each division to be as fair as possible, all junior categories will be designed on age, weight and height to keep physical and mental development as even as possible so please fill out entry forms correctly. Weigh in will commence prior to the sparring division starting.
I very much look forward to your attendance and promise as always I will help in any way that I can to ensure that your competition is a very enjoyable one. If anyone requires assistance with accommodation, entry forms, travel, party or any other aspect of our Taekwon-Do UK event, then please do not hesitate to contact me direct.
Associations are encouraged to submit referee’s at this event.
Good luck at these 2018 championships
Mr David Condie V
