Dear Taekwondo Friends,
On Behalf of the Portuguese Taekwondo Federation I have the pleasure of inviting you and your team to the Portuguese Taekwondo Open in Seixal.
Following the success of the 9th European Poomsae Championships, we have decided to organise a Portuguese Taekwondo Open for the first time, along with the team responsible for organising the Seixal Taekwondo Open for the last 5 years.
For the Kyorugi competitions we will be using Electronic Body Protectors (DAEDO) for the Cadet, Junior and Senior divisions; this will help athletes preparing for future world Taekwondo events and will help to develop the sport of Taekwondo.
For the Poomsae competition we will use eletronic judge scoring and WTF rules.
We are looking forward to the support of you and your team, to help make the Portuguese Open 2012 a major international tournament in the beautiful city of Seixal.
Dr. José Luís Souza
