World-class taekwondo is coming to London 19 – 22 October 2017!
The World Taekwondo Grand Prix and World Para Taekwondo Championships will bring world-class Taekwondo back to the capital for the first time since London 2012.
The World Taekwondo Grand Prix will see the world’s best athletes once again coming together to compete not just for the Grand Prix title, but also for valuable ranking points in the lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
The cream of British talent – including Rio 2016 Olympic medallists Jade Jones, Bianca Walkden and Lutalo Muhammad – will be kicking for glory and your support could make all the difference! They’ll be joined at the event by the world’s leading 250 athletes across eight different weight categories.
For the first time, the World Para Taekwondo Championships are being hosted in the UK, ahead of the sport making its Paralympic debut at Tokyo 2020. Britain’s leading Paralympic star, Amy Truesdale, will be leading the battle against the world’s very best with hopes of securing ranking points towards her first ever Paralympic Games, alongside a cohort of fresh talent from the 2016 Fighting Chance initiative.
