We are excited to hold the first international Taekwondo Seminar in Great Britain. This world-class event gives us a fantastic opportunity to connect to the Taekwondo community with each person and our desire to develop Taekwondo across this region and a wider sporting and martial art landscape was one of the prime reasons for hosting this seminar in Newcastle.

I would like to thank all our wider partners for their support and for making this possible.

Hopefully, with positive feedback on this event, we will be continuing with the same format and be running courses for novice and the advanced practitioners.

The atmosphere in previous internal courses has been fantastic and this really is an event for all Taekwondo family to enjoy, and we hope you will all join us for a great long weekend of Taekwondo action.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Newcastle in May 2018 and hope your training and preparation in the run-up to the Seminar goes well.

Thank you
Jalal Lajevardi
