FUN Tournament for ALL of MTC– September 20th


We organize the FUN Tournament just for our students. It is the greatest way for everyone, students and parents, to ease into the season. As the name implies it really is FUN and it is a low cost and low stress way to enjoy a tournament.
As an added bonus for the upcoming Montana Open, which we as a school will host on October 25th, the FUN Tournament is the practice  run not only for the athletes but for the volunteers, coaches, referees and supporters.

Join the MET to get more out of your TKD

For 2014 we have created the MTC MET, Missoula Taekwondo Center’s Montana Events Team. After witnessing the tremendous benefits of the NET (National Events Team), wanting to extend those benefits to more students, and considering the room for improvement seen in past local tournament experiences the MET has come to be. An incredible variety of martial artists will find their place on the MET; students who enjoy competition, students who are afraid of competition, students who want to get more out of their Taekwondo experience, athletes who would like to have more success in tournaments, athletes with eventual Nationals aspirations, students age 4-74, white belts, black belts and everyone in between.
MET requirements:
  • Must be enrolled in regular classes at MTC.
  • Must compete in and volunteer at the FUN Tournaments and The Montana Open.
  • Engage in behaviors inside and outside of the Dojang that will be looked upon favorably by your coaches, mentors, peers and juniors.
  • Sparring athletes must also compete in Poomsae. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
Poomsae athletes will pay $75.

MET member benefits (aside from the obvious benefits coming from added training and instruction):
  • 2-5 hours of added instruction time per week
  • (1) semi-private Poomsae and Tournament readiness session
  • Enjoy the benefits of individual competition within the unique environment of training with a team.
  • 2X per week WOD (workout of the day) posting for the exclusive benefit of our MET and NET

All Students Welcome to March in the Homecoming Parade

Coming up on September 27th we will again March in the U of M Homecoming Parade. Practices will be the 23rd and 25th at 7:30PM. Marching and kicking in the Parade is one of the most fun times we have a demonstration group. Event the smallest of our students can make this 1.25 mile trek down Higgins Avenue while handing out candy, kicking and waving to thousands of Missoulians.
The only cost associated with participating in this event is the purchase of the Parade Tshirt. Marchers and helpers will wear their shirts along with their TKD pants and belts and comfy walking shoes.

Get Some Cool Stuff-Support Some Dedicated Athletes

We are excited to announce that Mrs. Amanda has made the USA Taekwondo Poomsae Team and will represent the US at the Pan American Championships in Aguascalientes, Mexico. She will be accompanied by fellow Montanan, Master Dan Williams from Livingston. Ms. Kim Sturre and Lydia Rosbarsky have put together several ways for to be an active supporter in their journey. Lydia is selling hand made flower clips with all proceeds going to the cause, Stick it! Tshirts  are available for purchase (Only 2 days left-ends 9/8) and it is also possible to just make a straight donation via Fundly under the campaign, Send Amanda & Dan to the PanAm Championships. Also available from Mrs. Amanda are 9th World Poomsae Championships Tshirts sold to support her Dowongyuleui Team traveling to  the World Championships. Your support is important, without it our athletes could not reach their goals. US Poomsae teams are not financially supported by the National Organization and must raise their own funds to attend these events.
