With the westerns being a huge success for our members, the local media has taken notice.
We are pleased to announce that Sundance was selected by the Canadian Taekwon-Do Federation International (CTFI) to host the 2015 Western Canadian Championships. The decision was made at the recent annual general meeting held in Regina during the National Championships.
The tournament will see 350-400 competitors from across the western provinces competing for medals as well as rankings in our black belt national seeding point system. This will be the largest ITF event hosted in the Okanagan Valley in well over a decade and will mean great exposure for the sport aspect of Taekwon-Do in our region.
The westerns will feature competition for colour belts in both patterns and sparring. This will be a great opportunity for all of our colour belts to experience a large event without having the added costs of travelling. The tournament will be open to ages 5 and up starting at white belt.
For black belts the tournament will feature 7 categories of competition which will include individual patterns and sparring, team sparring, team patterns, individual power breaking, individual special technique and pre-arranged sparring. The event will also feature several Team Canada athletes as they prepare to represent Canada at the World Championships in May 2015.
The tournament will be held on April 11, 2015 at Kelowna Secondary.
