Fall Elementary School League Results

(Aurora, CO) – Students from 15 different schools competed in the Fall Elementary League Championships on November 12th, 2016 at the Korean Academy of Taekwondo. Events contested included forms (memorized patterns of movement), board breaking, grappling (trying to earn points by getting partners into a dominant position or causing them to tap out) and sparring (earning points by kicking and punching opponent’s targets).

The event was popular, with 81 athletes competing in a total of 149 events. This marked an 86% increase in the number of events contested over last year’s championships. The battle for top overall points was intense – with 12 points, this year’s fifth place winner would have earned first last year.

Instructor Paola Perez’s Montessori Del Mundo Team was the clear winner throughout, diversifying their sparring only performance from last year. In fact, their 42 points was more than last year’s champion, Aurora Quest, earned the entire 2015-2016 season (28).
