ITA Midwest Championships Report

The ITA Midwest Open Taekwon-Do Championships took place in Shannon, Co. Clare on Sunday November 14th 2010. The Championships was for Children and Cadets from the age of 8 to 17 and ranging from yellow belt to black belt. The event ran according to schedule from 10.00am to 4.30pm on 5 rings with 344 competitors from 21 clubs competing in 60 categories of patterns and sparring events. This was made possible by excellent planning from the tournament committee and the hard work of 45 referees throughout the day. Each participant received an individualised schedule upon arrival at the arena. This schedule informed them of the time there category would commence and in what ring and also the divisions for which they were registered. The standard in all divisions was exceptionally high throughout the day. Each of the national coaches, Mr. Stephen Cooley VI Dan, Mr. Niall Jones V Dan and Mr. Adrian Byrne V Dan, were present as many of the national team junior squad were competing at the event. The coaches were very pleased with the talent which is being developed right through the colour belt divisions.
