Refereeing Sport Taekwondo Events

The starting point to becoming a judge or a referee is to attend an official British Taekwondo Referee/Judge course. Once you qualify as a judge you can then attend events as an official. After a period of time, you can progress onto centre refereeing.

The courses are open to all students from the age of 15 years old. Completion of the course allows you to attend many events in the UK and overseas.

British Taekwondo Referees have travelled all over the world, often funded, to referee/judge at events such as the US Open, Belgian Open, Dutch Open, Swedish Open, World Championships, European Championships and Olympic Qualifiers.

You don’t have to be a top-class fighter to be at the Olympics, World or European Championships – referees/judges take part as well.
