One of the things that makes Taekwondo a great way to improve yourself is the built in milestone of belt testing. Taking it on step further are tournaments.
Preparing for a tournament lets a martial artist practice with purpose toward a tangible goal. Tournaments are structured so that individuals compete with students much like themselves. Groups are formed based on age, gender, size and belt level, making the right time to do a tournament when a student first shows an interest.
This spring the opportunities to participate in tournaments are:
- April 28th Livingston
- May 19th Great Falls
- June 9th Missoula
We recommend these tournaments to all of our students-white belt to black belt. Participating in these tournaments will bring more meaning into your life through expanded community and self improvement.
Students will have time working on the tournament events of Poomsae and Sparring in their core classes but they will benefit from additional training by attending Poomsae and Sparring classes, arranging private lessons and practicing on their own.
Poomsae and Sparring Classes
If you are not currently enrolled in these classes you can add 1 class for $10 at any time. See Class Options. for more information about these Friday Classes.
Private Lessons are available for as little as $20 per half hour and are a fantastic way to get instruction in precisely what a student needs. All MTC instructors are available for private lessons. Contact Ms. Kim, Ms.Abbey, Mrs. Amanda, Mr. Andy, Mr Ryan or Master R to set up a time.
Practice at home will ensure a development of "muscle memory" and increased confidence.
Please watch the board for tournament registrations.
