Come on down to the National Championships!
Inspired by all the action in Rio? Want to see some Olympic style Taekwondo? Get yourself down to the Olympic Park in London to watch the biggest ever National Championships!
Witness some great wins and show your support for team mates, friends and family from 24th-25th September at the Copperbox Arena and make the most of your exciting weekend in London!
Double Olympic medallist, Lutalo Muhammad is eager for everyone to enjoy the sport as much as he does and wants YOU to get involved following GB’s record-breaking success at Rio, “London is such a hot bed for the sport and such an exciting city, for anyone interested in watching Olympic style Taekwondo this is the definitely the best place to do so! It’ll be a great weekend for sure.”
We want this year’s event to be special for everyone that attends and have come up with some brilliant ways for you to take part – on the mats or off!
In the name of rallying support for those competing, we’re currently running the ‘Design a Sign’ competition, where clubs are encouraged to create signs to support their members during the Nationals. The winning club with the best displays and cheers throughout the competition will get to attend a meet and greet with a GB Taekwondo athlete at the brand new National Centre in Manchester!
The winners will be announced at the end of the weekend once all contenders have been adjudged – so give it your all!
Another awesome way to take part is by entering the ‘Kick2Win’ competition over on Twitter! Simply upload your best kicking moment, tag @BritishTaekwondo and use the hashtag #Kick2Win for the chance to win a hogu that has been signed by the GB Taekwondo squad.
We’ve had some cracking entries so far, so keep them coming!
Not to mention, we have an exclusive offer running over the course of the two days, where you can see the sights of the capital from the UK’s tallest sculpture and slide, the ArcellorMital Orbit. Simply show your accreditation or spectator pass to get 2-for-1 entry over the weekend.
