Message from the organizer

I look forward to welcoming all Taekwondo participants from across Australia and neighbouring regions to participate in this very unique and exciting event.

In one of Australia’s only truly open and non-political Taekwondo events, we anticipate a great diversity in attendees in age, style, rank and allegiance. 

As an additional bonus, we are also offering training seminars prior to the championships open to all who wish to take part.

Yours in Taekwondo for all

Michael Muleta,

Organizer Arnold Sports Festival Taekwondo Championships
