Help support BT Taekwondo Poomsae Athlete Simon N selected for GBR Team at the World & Commonwealth Taekwondo Poomsae Championships 2014 two Great opportunities he has to represent GB & England. TUVM More ...

British Taekwondo have an "Amateur Taekwondo Athlete Squad" performing Forms in age catagories from 14-65+ both male and female for Great Britain and are fully self funded with no assistance from other parties in getting to represent Great Britain in Taekwondo. They have acheived increased Ranking for the past few years producing National Champions, European Medalists in 2013, Commonwealth Taekwondo Medalists 2008/12, World Ranked players since 2010.

One such Athlete is Simon has acheived results at these levels but has two further great opportunities later this year at The World Taekwondo Poomsae Championships with the GBR Team, and on the England Team in the Commonwealth Taekwondo Championships shortly after.

Most athletes use their own or parents income to try and make the team each year, but would like assistance to get to the World & Commonwealth Championships in Mexico in October/November 2014.

With such great opportunities that await as these top events, the hard work has already started with training intensified and skills being developed with the hope of doing great at these events. Something family and freinds can assist with by helping to contribute to the cause and honour for representing our country.

 Any funds raised will be solely used to assist the selected atheltes to finance the most expensive parts of the campain which is towards the travel and accomodation at the event. Any spare funds will help towards Uniforms, training equipment and Sports Therapy treatments during preparations for such a big competition.

GBR Poomsae Dobok

All the Athletes have self funded all their past acheivements since being on the GBR Squad and in the current climate would appreciate any assistance for this and future events. As time goes on it becomes hard to maintain this sport at such a high level for their country and the biggest challenge while maintaining fitness and performance is always the financial berdon and strain this can have on personal life while maintaining a home education and families. The Team would not normally turn to a fund raising site for this but feel any assistance given would be helpful and fully used to keep representing the UK in the world of WTF Taekwondo Poomsae.

The events are running from

World Championships Mexico 30th October - 2nd November 2014

Commonwealth Taekwondo Championships Edinburgh 16/16th November 2014
