The VII th ITF Taekwon-Do Perth Cup State Championships was held on 16-17 August 2014 and it was the biggest yet! There were competitors from as far as Geradlton and the event officially opened with a fine display of prearranged free sparring which was thoroughly enjoyed by all, especially the juniors who had front row seats.

On the 17th of August the Taekwon-Do Perth Cup was held. It was a very thrilling experience. As usual, there were lots of events to look forward to. Everyone did very well, but the most important thing was to have fun. The best part for some people may have been receiving the medals!
The team patterns were great. Some teams in the junior session had no time to practice and they were really good at co-operating. Time flies and I’ll be looking forward to the future events. Especially the next Perth Cup! Time to train hard like always.
