KH Kim Taekwondo Tournament Team

We pride ourselves on our curriculum at KH Kim Taekwondo, but we believe there is much more to Taekwondo than learning in class. The application of Taekwondo is essential to monitor progress and encourage development in students. Fortunately, a vast majority of Taekwondo students will never have to apply their skills for self defense, so that leaves the question "how do we encourage the application of Taekwondo without encouraging violence?" The answer is simple: Competition.

We are aiming to build a tournament team of students who wish to travel and get the most out of their Taekwondo experience. This is a great way for students to use their skills in a competitive way to promote growth and increase interest in Taekwondo as a sport. Furthermore, remember that tournament participation is a requirement for black belt, and being part of this team will help you earn your blue, yellow, and red stars.

Tournament Team

We intend on bringing students to tournaments across the Midwest. This includes participation in Sharp's Taekwondo Open Midwest Tournament, JK Lee's Tournament of Champions, Walker's Taekwondo Open Tournament, Bill Cho Midwest Tournament, and of course, KH Kim's inter-tournament! There are plenty of opportunities for competition, and we hope to have our school's participation. Tournaments are always on weekends, most commonly Saturdays. Some tournaments, including Sharp's are two-day events. The tournaments are all within driving distance (except for the Hanmadang, for those who are interested) and often run from the morning until later in the afternoon.

Days and times of practices will be announced soon. A full list of upcoming event's and scheduled times will be emailed out as well as posted in front of room one at the headquarters.

The tournaments almost always have the three basic events: Poomsae, board-breaking, and sparring. Some tournaments have weapons forms, creative poomsae, pairs and family poomsae, and power breaking. We encourage students to partake in at least two events to help broaden their martial arts experience.
