Are you interested in forming an exciting partnership with Ireland's largest and most successful Taekwon-Do Association?
The Irish Taekwon-Do Association is the NGB for Taekwon-Do in Ireland and currently comprises almost 100 schools across the country, a number that has been steadily growing in recent years as the popularity of Taekwon-Do as a physical activity for all age’s increases. Even though the ITA is recognised as the NGB for Taekwon-Do we do not receive any direct funding for our sport, which could be used for local and national development or to fund our international athletes.
In our schools we teach children as young as five years old, through teenagers and adults of all ages.
Athletes on the national team come through this club system and are selected based on their performances at national and international tournaments. These athletes train 6 to 7 days per week, often with 2 sessions per day in the months running up to a major event.
Unfortunately our athletes have to rely on fundraising, which is done locally in their own schools and regions. Athletes must self fund their own training, travel, team kits, training equipment and all other associated costs. They do this, as they are passionate about Taekwon-Do and about representing their local club/school, their region and their country at continental and world championships.
Ireland is currently ranked among the top Taekwon-Do countries in the world, despite the fact that we are competing against countries that receive government funding for their sport.
Taekwon-Do in Ireland is flourishing and the talent that we are producing is phenomenal. The results we have achieved by relying on local fundraising and volunteers have been amazing. We feel that if we can gain the support of a sponsor in any capacity it will only serve to further improve our success, raise our profile and increase the chances of the national team to achieve even greater success. This in turn will inspire the many thousands of children training in Taekwon-Do at grass roots level in their clubs across Ireland to emulate the success of these athletes and achieve their own future goals.
