The UNSW Taekwondo Club trains everyone from white belt beginner to national and internationally certified black belts.
The club combines both the traditional discipline of the Taekwondo in order to harness its real-world applications, as well as focusing on the sport and fitness that have become a major component in recent years
UNSWTKD had a field day out at the recent NSW Unified Taekwondo States Championships.
Takwa Tissaoui had a hard fought out battle for 2nd place in her Poomsae division, losing out to 1st place by 0.2 points (a VERY SMALL margin!)
Poomsae instructor Elena Zhao's hard work over the last couple of months at UNSWTKD paid off as she won Gold in her Black Belt Poomsae Division, being crowned State Champion. This is a great result for Elena, and a confidence booster before heading to Nationals later this year as she aims to make the Australian Team for Taekwondo Poomsae for the Oceania Championships.
Dino Permadi was able to come from behind in both his matches to take out the State title, adding another Gold to his already decorated cabinet. Dino is also on track to perform well at Nationals.
