Dear instructors and students,
It is that time of the year again, almost time to register for one of Europe’s best ITF taekwon-do tournaments, the Open Dutch. January the 28th is the date, make sure to put this in your calendars. As mentioned before, we moved the event to our hometown Helmond. Still very close to Eindhoven airport (22 km) though. At the new location we are able to have between 8 and 10 squares, but all of this in a single sports hall. Making it for competitors and coaches a lot easier to see other matches and get the full Open Dutch experience! We have already received various commitments from different countries and teams that they will participate again. We expect a high quality event with once again the best taekwon-doka’s from all over the world. Open Dutch is organized in cooperation with ITF-Netherlands and is part of the Master Series. We will use the electronic scoring system and registration from Sportdata. Visit this website frequently as we will be updating it more regularly the closer we get to the tournament. We just added the invitation to the Invitation & Registration page, but also place it here for your convenience:
Please note that this year, we will have a power-breaking competition as well as an overall sparring class in different divisions. Registration will open up on the 1st of December and we hope to welcome many of you on the 28th of January and are looking forward to a great tournament.
