Parataekwondo: we are the future!

We are thrilled to share a significant milestone in our journey towards inclusivity and empowerment in Taekwondo!
At the European Qualification Tournament for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games, in Sofia Bulgaria, we had 6 dedicated trainee classifiers undertaking their assessment, 5 of whom successfully advanced to become fully qualified International Medical and Technical classifiers in Europe!

Dr. Said Khelwatty, ETU Para Taekwondo Chair, commented “The role of parataekwondo classifiers is pivotal in ensuring fair competition and providing equal opportunities for para athletes to showcase their skills on a global platform. This achievement not only highlights the dedication and hard work of our trainee classifiers but also underscores the growing importance of inclusivity and accessibility in Taekwondo. By expanding the pool of qualified classifiers, we are breaking barriers and opening doors for para athletes to excel and inspire the world with their remarkable talents.”
