The World ITF Taekwon-Do Council is delighted to announce that we will have more than 600 competitors participating from over 20 countries.
We are also delighted to announce that all Blue Belts and Red Belts will now no longer be grouped together.
Some weight divisions & height divisions for sparring will be amended to meet the needs of Fair Play for the competitors who will attend. Amendments for patterns and special technique will also be implemented in the interest of Fair Play, creating more but smaller divisions.
For your information, the overall champions will be decided by calculating points from medals achieved. The awarding process is as follows:
Gold = 3 points
Silver = 2 Points
Bronze = 1 Point
In the event that more than 1 person in any group has the same points totals, then the order of importance of the medals will be observed as follows:
Power (Adults & Veterans only)
Once all height checks & weight checks are completed, and any required amendments are made, details will be made available to all coaches, competitors and spectators before the events commence.
There will be NO CHARGE for any amendments required.
We currently have a large number of 3 person teams registered. However, we will be delighted if more teams wish to participate.
Each day, new teams will be allowed to enter our team events prior to them commencing. Competitors can meet up with fellow competitors to create teams for the 3 person team pattern and sparring events. Simply find 3 people who want to participate together, register (choosing your new team name) and get ready to finish off your day participating in the team events. Team members can be from different clubs or countries as these results are not used as part of the overall country World Champions.
