Tournament Information

World Taekwondo Sport Competition Streams – Sparring & Poomsae


PMAA students are encouraged to participate in local and provincial tournaments throughout the year to test their courage and skills against other opponents in friendly competition.  Regardless of outcome, it is a learning experience to build confidence, sportsmanship and strong moral character.  When a student humbly wins a medal or trophy, it is fantastic.  When they lose or do not receive any medal or trophy, they will learn how to accept losing with humility, grace, good sportsmanship and determination to work harder to be better, faster and stronger the next time.

Students who wish to compete are asked to inform Instructors so we may prepare them accordingly. Any student who wants to develop as an elite athlete is encouraged to join PMAA’s High Performance Team.  See PMAA’s staff or speak to Master Sadler personally to discuss further.
