Saturday 19 August 2017

Welcome from Taekwondo Union of New Zealand President 

Dear Instructor, 

It is with great pleasure that we invite you and your members to participate in the 2017 TUNZ North Island Invitational Championship, which will be hosted by New Plymouth Taekwondo. This tournament will be held on Saturday 19thof August, at TSB Stadium, Mason Drive, New Plymouth. 

This is a one day event and will include, Kyorugi (Sparring), Poomsae (individual, pairs and teams), as well as a jumping front kick competition. The tournament is open to all invited WTF players regardless of affiliation and as usual Union members will receive a discounted price on all events. 

This year the Daedo electronic system will be used for all Red and Black Belt Kyorugi divisions. This is a great opportunity to develop our Red belts and as such each competitor will need to supply their own Daedo sensor socks. It is encouraged that these be purchased prior to the tournament as there is no guarantee that there will be sensor socks available for purchase at the tournament. 

Who doesn’t love a jumping front kick competition? It is great to see this event back up and running and it will be a lot of fun seeing how high we can all jump! Make sure you register as no entries will be permitted on the day. 

Registrations should be managed by each club and submitted as per the instructions within this document by close of business on Tuesday 8th August 2017. Late Registrations will not be accepted. Instructors will be given competitors list on Friday 11th August and will have until Monday morning to advise the organisers of any changes or alterations (due to incorrect weight etc or uncontested players). The final draw will be published on Wednesday 16th August. Any alterations after this time will incur a team penalty of 10 points in the calculation of the team awards. 

Remember Registrations Close on Tuesday 8th August. If you need any assistance or require additional information please contact the Tournament Director Mr. Richard Coomber. 

Best of luck to all the competitors and may I wish you all a successful and fun tournament. 

Yours in Taekwondo, 

Grant Beel
