Goodwill Championships – 19th May 2018

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

The National team all performed well, scooping up 5 medals in total; (1 Silver, 4 Bronze).  This is testimony to the hard work of team, with 7 competitors also reaching the quarter final stages.
