On Sunday 27th
March 2011, UK-ITF held their Scottish National Championships at the recently
completed Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility. The event attracted more than
two hundred and twenty competitors from thirty different clubs.
This was the
first time that the Scottish Championships had been held at a new and improved
venue, providing better spectator facilities, easy parking, better
transportation links and a more central location to suit local Taekwon-Do
students, instructors and associated families and supporters.
competitors began at 9am and by 10am, the three large matted areas had began to
host some of youngest champions who battled their way through Tul.
In an attempt to
keep all competitors and supporters involved throughout the day, two of four
components which underpin ITF competition (Patterns, Sparring) were staggered
to ensure that each student had taken to the floor before midday, with
Destruction and Special Technique run continuously at the designated area of
Umpires were assigned to each area, providing unrivalled professionalism to the
event which was so incredibly important for those attaining selection points
for forthcoming World Taekwon-Do Championships in Canada.
competition ran efficiently and the competitors participated whilst maintaining
good sportsmanship and adhering to Taekwon-Do Tenets.
I on behalf of
Region 1 would like to thank all participants, families and supports who took
time to travel to this year’s event. We hope you enjoyed this year’s event and
we would love to have your valued in attendance again in 2012.
We would also
like to thank our very own UK-ITF President, Master Trevor Nicholls, Mr Mandeep
Rauli and Glenn Horan for their active involvement at the event’s Control Table and for their
continued support of Scotland.
Further, we give
special thanks to all our officials including; Mr Yogi Chand, Mr Mark Richards, Miss Wendy Richards, Dr
Hayley Parker, Miss Laurie Cornwall and Darren Bonfield for their tireless efforts and refereeing
