The 2016 ITF National Championships was held in Caroline Springs, Victoria on Saturday 19th March.
An historic event, it celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the formation of the International Taekwon-Do Federation.
The 2016 ITF National Championships featured competitors from all Australian states as well as New Zealand, participating in events such as Sparring (combat), Patterns (Pre-choreographed routines), Special Techniques (Spectacular aerobatic board breaking) and Power Breaking (measuring the strongest breaks)
In addition to many juniors and beginners, the event included a high percentage of entrants who are current and recent World Champions and as expected, the matches were of a very high standard, conducted in a great spirit.
Thank you to all who came along and supported the event, particularly those who helped out as volunteers and officials on the day.
