Welcome from Taekwondo Union of New Zealand President
It is with great pleasure that we invite you and your members to participate in the 2018 TUNZ South Island Championship which will be hosted by Green Island Taekwondo. This tournament will be held on Saturday 26th of May at the Angus Badminton Stadium, 101 Victoria Rd, St Kilda, Dunedin.
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 WT 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 Thursday 17th May 2018. Late Registrations will not be accepted. Instructors will be given competitors.
Remember Registrations Close on Thursday 17th May 2018. If you need any assistance or require additional information, please contact the Tournament Director Sue Keen.
Best of luck to all the competitors and may I wish you all a successful and fun tournament.
Yours in Taekwondo,
TAEKWONDO UNION OF NEW ZEALAND
