    Good morning, All.  As noted in many earlier emails and newsletters, TUNZ has been involved in helping to achieve the following for its members, and for all Taekwondo athletes in this country.  Please pass this information on to all your members.   

    “NZETKD Launches!

    A new World Taekwondo affiliated organisation has launched in New Zealand. 

    New Zealand Elite Taekwondo (NZETKD) has been formed as an alternative national Taekwondo governing body for those organisations that resigned from the disputed body Taekwondo NZ.  For the past year interested parties have worked diligently in conjunction with Sport New Zealand to provide a robust, fair and transparent governing body where the interests of its members are paramount.

    An NZETKD spokesperson confirmed that the new governing body was accepting new membership applications and currently had 50% of the country's Taekwondo membership under its umbrella, including the Olympic athletes.

    “Despite the uncertainty of the Taekwondo environment in New Zealand to date, the future is starting to look brighter” said the spokesperson.

    Dear friends

    Welcome to the 9th Gold Coast Open. This year we will be back at the 180 million dollar GC Sports & Leisure centre. Due to the Commonwealth games no venues were available on the Gold Coast from January – July. Our first available slot was the end of July. However we will be back in May 2019 for our 10th Gold Coast Open.

    The Gold Coast Open (GCO) has developed a reputation as being the premier competition in Australia. To ensure we finish on time, the event will again be capped at 500 entries.
