Harrogate KTA at the 2018 Taekwondo Hanmadang – Jeju, South Korea

Over the Summer break, Master Ali, Ghazal and Aaron traveled to South Korea to compete in the 2018 Taekwondo Hanmadang.

The three met up in Seoul, after Master Ali visited the Kukkiwon headquarters, and then traveled on to Jeju a day before registration to enjoy the island.

Once registered, the team ate dinner on the eve of the opening day with other competitors, notably the President of Belgian Taekwondo.

During the 4 day competition, Master Ali competed in the Individual Poomsae & Knife Hand Break, narrowly missing out on the final of both events.

Aaron also missed out on the finals in the Knife Hand Break, and the High Jump Kick Break; as did Master Chris Maguire in the Speed Hand Break event.

Ghazal unfortunately had to pull out of the finals for the All Round Breaking & High Jump Kick Break through injury.

After the competition concluded, Aaron returned home and Master Ali and Ghazal continued on to Japan for their well-deserved holiday.

Below are a selection of the photographs taken by the team.
