(Henderson, CO) – The Colorado State Taekwondo Association held its annual team trials on August 17th, 2013. Athletes from many schools came to face off for positions on team for both the sparring and poomsae events. As has previously been the case for the state team, some divisions were extremely competitive with national team members going for spots, while some spots were left vacant.
The state team will practice together every few weeks in preparation for the 2014 US Open Taekwondo Championships. Future practices will likely be open to other interested black belts for a small fee. The team will also probably host an open training session to give back to the grassroots elements of Colorado Taekwondo.
Sponsorships, team uniforms, and other information will be given later.
