Yes it is the holiday season, but if you want to be prepared for the Open Dutch you better spend those hours training hard! I know we are. Here a quick promo video of Team Difesa getting ready for the tournament, this time the Junior/Senior group.
In the past couple of weeks Team Difesa has been getting ready for the Open Dutch, during their various training sessions this cool promo video was shot. They all look ready to us, are you?
Thanks Pieter for this awesome video!
We’ve had an overwhelming number of emails and requests about registration, many people and teams from outside of the Netherlands wanted to lock in their participation and as such the registration website for the Open Dutch has been opened up today. You can register, and request access to register, through the following page: http://www.itf-ors.com/. Make sure to enter all your details correctly! We will see you on the 29th of January.
In 2017 we are bringing back, after many requests, the ability for white and yellow belts to register for the competition. In order to lower the barrier for entering and to ensure every taekwon-doka will have a great experience even if they are new to tournaments we have created two different classes. For those who have not fully read the invite yet, here are the details of those two new classes:
C-class : Green tag – Blue tag (7th – 5th gup, point-stop sparring)
D-class : White belt – Yellow belt (10th – 8th gup, point-stop sparring)
For more details around the patterns and the time of the sparring rounds please have a look at the invitation. We hope to welcome many of you on the 29th of January, and don’t forget that registration opens the 1st of December!
