The UKTA’s National Course and Black Belt grading of 2021 took place at the East Grinstead Sports Club on Sept 10th – 12th.   

Almost 100 participants enjoyed the UKTA’s first in person event since the World stopped due to Covid-19 pandemic.

UKTA Grand Masters John Williamson, Michael Prewett, John Taylor and Gary Miller covered all aspects of Taekwon-Do starting with Fundamental movements working through all 24 Patterns, Sparring, Power, Flying Technique and Self- Defence.  The course finished on Saturday afternoon with a presentation of certificates for recent achievements.
