2007 World Tae Kwon Do Championships

Had a great day today went to the National Indoor Arena to watch the 8th Open Tae Kwon Do World Championships. The event started a little later than scheduled due to the vast number of competitors taking part this year. By the end of the day we had seen a number of World Champions crowned in the Musical Patterns as well as the Singles and Team Sparring and WTF formats.

I enjoyed the day, realised how much I miss participating in open competitions so it all felt a little bitter sweet. The level of competition was extremely high which was to be expected given that there were almost thirty countries represented. Plus I caught a glimpse of the incomparable Becky Riggs

I managed to record a few of the fights on my N73 which I’ve uploaded to YouTube, here’s one of them:

All in all it’s been a really enjoyable day.

  1. Thank you for your very kind words. The clip you have is one of my students Amir Hussen. A star of the future I hope, along with one or two other people from our schools. I’m really pleased you enjoyed the tournament and look forward to seeing you at the next event. Best wishes.
