2023 British Taekwondo Events Calendar

We are pleased to publish the sanctioned British Taekwondo events calendar for 2023 having been through an extensive policy development process and invitation to submit.


Please note that event details are subject to change.

Some of the national event dates and venues are to be confirmed.

To manage events effectively and fairly and address the fundamental structural stresses that have been highlighted in the review of event sanctioning, a sanctioning system that balances the frequency, geographical spread and quality of domestic events has been adopted as a pilot scheme for 2023.
