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!
Write it down in your calendar, we have a date for the 2017 edition of the Open Dutch: 29th of January 2017. It is going to be at the same venue again and you can expect the same high quality as previous editions. We are hoping to welcome many of you from many different teams and different countries.
Make sure you are ready for the competition, 7 months ahead, train hard!
