ITA Success at Euro Cup

ITA Success at Euro Cup

The ITA finished the AETF European Cup in Budapest (10th - 12th October 2014) with great success in both the main Euro Cup and the children's/cadets Mightyfist Cup. The event began on the Friday with the Mightyfist cup and our children aged 10-12 and cadets 12-14 performed excellently to place Ireland 2nd overall. The standard in the Mightyfist cup was very high and it shows that the next generation of talent coming through in ITA is of an excellent level, which bodes well for the future of the national team. The main Euro Cup took place on the Saturday and Sunday with both individual and team events in the 14-17 years and 18+ categories. ITA once again performed extremely well to finish 3rd place overall in the junior teams and 2nd place overall in the schools/associations competing. ITA took home an impressive 5 Gold, 4 Silver and 17 Bronze medals from the event. 

Thanks to all the coaches for their hard work and thanks to our umpires who travelled to the event and worked tirelessly over the 3 days of competition.

ITA Technical Seminar Report

ITA Technical Seminar Report

The ITA National Technical Seminar, conducted by the ITA Technical Committee of Master Kenneth Wheatley VII, Mr Niall Jones VI and Mr Stephen Ryan, was held in Ennis National School, Co. Clare on Sunday October 19th 2014. The seminar was a great success with 70 participants, from blue belt and above,  coming from clubs all across the country including several of the ITAs masters. The seminar covered many topics from the ITA Syllabus with a big focus on the ITF patterns, fundamental movements, performance, kicking and physical preparation of the body for kicking including flexibility, leg strength and mobility. The seminar also covered topics such as free sparring, step sparring and self defence as well as a short module on the "Do". The feedback from everyone was very positive and we eagerly await the next seminar with the ITA technical team.
