2018 2nd Korean Consul General Cup & Taekwondo Festival [Photos & Recap]

On May 19th, 2018, the 2nd annual Korean Consul General Cup and Taekwondo Festival took place at the Richmond Curling Club (5540 Hollybridge Way) - not too far from the Lansdowne Skytrain Station (about a 10 min walk). Taekwondo Poomsae competition started around 9:30am and then board-breaking later on. I brought my son along and knew he would have a great time. Although we arrived later in the afternoon, we were able to watch the sparring competition and cheered for our team-mates as well as greet a few of our Taekwondo Masters.

The little ones were super cute and it's pretty amazing how well they did in the competition. If you have children who train in Taekwondo, the tournaments would be a great opportunity to showcase their skills in either Poomsae (patterns), Sparring or Breaking.

Beautiful trophies were awarded to all the competitors.

It was a great event where we get to learn a little bit about the Korean culture, practice Taekwondo, and eat delicious food.
