Four Black Dragon Martial Arts students competed in the USA Taekwondo National Championship tournament in Austin, TX from July 4-11, 2015. Each of our students represented our school spectacularly and did their absolute best!
In order to compete at the national level, each competitor must be a member of USA Taekwondo, which is the only Taekwondo organization recognized by the US Olympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee. In addition, competitors must place 1st through 4th in their division at a state or regional US Taekwondo qualifier.
At the National Championship, competitors can compete in the following events:
- Board Breaking
All four Black Dragon Martial Arts students competed well in the sparring event.
For many of our competitors, this was their very first experience competing at the national level. Through this experience, our competitors all bonded, had a great time, and learned what it truly means to be a team. Regardless of the individual outcomes, our students, parents and certified referees gave each other pointers before the match, cheered and consoled, and developed an unparalleled camaraderie that the Black Dragon Martial Arts family is known for.
