The 2019 Arnold Classic Taekwondo Championships, or affectionately known as the Arnolds, was a huge success. The event was held as part of the Arnolds Sports Festival Australia in Melbourne on March 16th.
With over 200 participants, we were not only the largest martial arts event of the festival, but also the largest sport.
Congratulations to event organizer, Master Michael Muleta, on once again co-ordinating a large and diverse group of people, from across multiple organizations, to work co-operatively to pull off a great event.
Participants came from far and wide, with ITF, WT and independent schools travelling from across Australia and New Zealand to take part.
Events included both ITF and WT sparring, ITF Patterns, WT Poomse, Self Defense Demos and Team Demos.
We also featured for the first time, the inclusion of a Special Needs category.
The ‘Arnolds has now become an annual ‘must attend’ for many Taekwondo schools’ events calendars, with many already asking about the 2020 event.
The highlight, of course, was when the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, came to say hello to all the competitors and watch some spectacular martial arts action.
