Saturday 1st May PROUDLY HOSTED BY NZUTA South Island Clubs

Dear Instructor

It is with great pleasure that we invite you and your students to participate in the 2021 NZUTA South Island Taekwondo Championships.


The tournament will be held at the Waitaki Recreation Centre, on Saturday 1st May 2021, and is open to all WT style colour belts (8th Geup and above) and Black Belts.

This is a one day Tournament and will be a Poomsae and Kyorugi competition. The sparring will be full contact under WT rules (with NO head contact for competitors 12 years and under). Competitors should be aware of the tournament rules, safety equipment requirements, and the attached Hazard Control Plans for the major significant hazards present during the tournament competition.

Instructors Notes-

 1. It is compulsory for all fighting competitors to comply with WT Kyorugi rules.

2. ALL Kyorugi competitors are required to wear protective equipment including both shin guards and instep guards/sparring socks, and mouth guard either clear or white.

3. Black Belt competitors must wear WT approved gloves. It is recommended that all competitors have gloves as a precaution against injury.

4. We will be running 2 competition rings for Kyorugi. Competitors red belt and above will be using Daedo scoring and need to ensure they have their own electronic foot socks.

Poomsae competition will be held over 2 rings in the morning.

Please take care in completing your member’s tournament entry forms. Ensure competitors correct height and weights are recorded. Coaches please check all names are spelt correctly on the team list (please type these on the included excel file). All competitors will receive a certificate of participation.

Once all team lists are received by the 16th of April, we will put together a draft draw and it will be sent out via email to all clubs. Please check to see if we have placed your competitor in the right division. We will make any amendments necessary if we have placed your competitor in the incorrect division when contacted by Instructors but will not include late entries. If your competitor has been entered in the wrong division due to Instructor’s oversight they may face disqualification.

5. No head contact for competitors aged 12 years and under. Please note - Ages are as per WT Rules. For example, a competitor born in the year 2003 is judged to be a 17 year old regardless of whether they are born on the 1st of January or the 31st of December.

For safety and fairness we must match competitors in accordance with the rules by age, weight, and grade, so it is important for Instructors to check that the correct information is entered on the entry forms & the Team List form provided. This will ensure your athletes are not disappointed by being disqualified prior to competing.

All Team Lists must be received by 10pm Friday 16th of April 2021, and all entry forms must be received by 23rd  April 2021 if emailed or handed in at check-in on day of Tournament.  No late entries will be accepted.

All Entry Fees are to be paid by the 23rd April 2021.

We also ask that all officials (Referees & Judges) register on the Team List provided so that we can plan ahead to ensure that the tournament is run as smoothly and as fairly as possible.

This information package is designed to assist officials, instructors and competitors. If there are any questions in relation to this package or the tournament, please do not hesitate to contact the Tournament Directors.
