11.9.2023 / Meeting of Centers youth talentes
New format of the competition meeting
For this year the Czech Taekwon-Do ITF Association has prepared big changes concerning the competitive meetings of the Talented Youth Centres. Unfortunately, the changes affected both the scope of competition (no team) and the volume, where younger students cannot compete. And of the two meets per year, only one remains.
Those who came to Brno for this year's competition meeting were finally expected to compete in a system of each with each other and in a sports fight for two rounds with a break. This proved to be very lengthy for the course of the competition and for matches with a big difference in the opponents' performance as completely unnecessary. We will see what the future holds, but I believe this model should be modified very soon.
Sonkal sent 8 male and female competitors to the joint STM Prague 2 team and they were very successful. See here
for a summary of their success. Lukáš Sekera added to his medal successes the trophy for the most successful senior junior.
The STM competition concluded the spring part of the season and the autumn part will be opened by the Czech Taekwon-Do ITF Cup in October in Řepy, Prague.
