View all articles
Early Sunday morning the 21st of April 2013 saw
the early arrivals at the Mandeville Sports stadium in Kensington, Johannesburg,
South Africa. One could feel the excitement and anticipation growing. The growth of our association over the last ten years has seen this tournament go from strength to strength.
After all of the clubs did the official March in, the
welcome and thank you speech was given by TSA president Norman Magua V Deg.
There after a heartfelt letter was read out from Master Trevor Nicholls 8th
Dan, Secretary General of the International Taekwon-Do Federation
congratulating TSA on their tenth competition and continued progress.
The invitational tournament hosted around two hundred
competitors and ran on four floors plus a breaking and special techniques
section consecutively by age group. The categories were sparring, patterns,
power breaking & special technique breaking. The standard was high and the
competition was fierce with all competing vying for the honour of being
Taekwon-Do South Africa champion in the their various divisions.
With the valuable help of all of our floor teams which
included umpires, corner judges, table officials and all of the set up and
administration members the day ran smoothly over all and finished around 5pm.
We look forward to our next instalment and aim as always to
further improve in all aspects of this prestigious event.
