Wirral UKTA Members Competing Nationally & Internationally
Not all competitions are the same
With the fragmentation of Taekwon-do organisations, there are many groups and organisations all holding their own 'English Championships' 'British Championships' even so called 'World Championships' and they are very varied in their size and standard.
Local inter-school competitions held by some organisations are bigger than so-called 'British Championships' held by others, so some titles have to be taken with a pinch of salt. Official ITF World & European Championships are not accessible to beginners, small children, or just anyone who wants to have a go. They are only for Black Belts who are selected to represent their country having attended regular coaching sessions with ITF National coaches and having proved themselves at National level.
National competitions, however, are accessible to most students, from yellow belt up to black. The ones we take students to are extremely well run and organised with experienced judges and umpires. They take place in prestigious venues on fully matted rings and sometimes run over 2 days. UKTA competitions are free to spectators and there is always a great atmosphere.
We at Wirral UKTA have covered the entry costs of our members for several years now and often provide fee transport too
