Now Playing What just played?



 It is my pleasure to inform you that 21 competitors of Gladiators MAA will be joining the Canadian delegation, which will be representing Canada at the upcoming Chan Hun International Taekwon-Do Federation World Championships. As well Gladiators MAA head instructor Mr. Luis Martinez has been appointed as one of the two Team Canada coaches.

 These championships will be held in Melbourne Australia, March 9th and 10th 2019

 The champions will consist of a peewee division, ages 10-13, a junior division, ages 14-17, a seniors division, ages 18-35 and a veterans division ages 35+. Each division is divided by gender, weight and belt level. The competitors will be competing in multiple events, Individual Patterns, Sparing, Team Patterns and Team Sparing

 At present the Canadian Team consists of 45 competitors from across Canada. They will be competing against over 600 competitors from 28 countries in Australia

 It is expected that the competitors will do well as 17 of our competitors are returning to world class competition. These 17 were part of the Canadian delegation which represented Canada at the World Open Taekwon-Do Championships in Barneveld Netherlands in 2017. This Canadian delegation returned with 20 gold, 21 silver, and 28 bronze medals.
