Cork Open 2017

Cork Open 2017

Dear Masters, Instructors/Coaches,

We have the pleasure of inviting you, on behalf of the Irish Taekwon-Do Association, to the ITA Cork Open Championships, which will be held in Neptune Stadium, Cork, on the weekend of the 11th and 12th of February 2017. This competition will include pattern and sparring for all grades, special technique for all blue belts and above from aged 11 upward and power test for black belts. Saturday 11th November is for all black belts as well as colour belts of cadet (14 -17 years), senior (18 to 34 years) as well as veteran (35 years+) categories and is open to yellow belts and above. Those 35 years and older may choose to enter the senior or veteran category. Veterans will compete separately for pattern and sparring divisions only (please make sure to email the weights of your veterans that are sparring in case we need to split categories).

Sunday 12th February is for the junior colour belt categories and is open to yellow belt to black tag aged 7 to 13yrs. Please note all black belts have now moved to Saturday regardless of age.

Please email your entries to entries@taekwondo.ie no later than Saturday, the 4th of February. Please note that this is a pre-registration only event. No club entries will be accepted after the 4th of February. All entries should be made using the Cork Open excel spreadsheet. Entries will be confirmed by return of email (within 24 hours). If you have not received a confirmation email, your entries have not yet been received. Completed hardcopy forms should be brought on the day of the event. Please remember that accurate information is the responsibility of the instructor. When submitting your competitor entries you must also send your umpire and coach list or the form will be returned to you as incomplete.

 

Sparring for Cadet and Senior Black Belts will be run using a pool & requalification system, guaranteeing more bouts for all competitors in those categories.

 

First, second and joint third place in each section shall receive an award, except for black belt categories of 4 competitors where there will be a 3rd place playoff. Additionally all juniors up to 10 years to green tag who are not placed will receive a commemorative medal.

 

Looking forward to seeing you at this event,

Master Mark Buckley VII Dan              Mr. Stephen Ryan VI Dan

ITA Tournament Director                    ITA Tournament Coordinator
