3rd Open Asian Cup

New Delhi, India – May 31st-June 2nd 2019

Report by Yves Pollefeyt:

On Wednesday we helped the organisation putting on the tatamis in the sports hall and preparing everything. On Thursday we gave a seminar together with GM Bos, Master Wallace and Master Vones, Sabum Johan De Silva and Sabum Aniil. After the seminar we had the registration and weight in.

On Friday the competition started with over 300 competitors; we had participants from India, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Nepal, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Madagascar. It was the first time with the electronic system so a lot of people needed to be educated and informed about it. After everything was ready the competition started. Sabum Wim Vermandere was center referee and I was the Jury President. Also for us it was a great experience and we were happy to be able to represent Belgium to help. ITF Taekwon-Do in India is growing in a good way and they are planning to come also to the next World Cup so will be great to see them again.
