Kukkiwon World Taekwondo Academy (WTA) is holding a naming contest on Taekwondo masters and WTA instructors.

 

The contest fields are as follows: Master Name Field: Name of 1, 2 and 3 class Taekwondo masters (Korean, English), and Instructor Name Field: Name of 1, 2 and 3 class WTA instructors (Korean, English).

 

The contest period is from June 17 (Mon) to August 16 (Fri), and you may enter the contest as an individual or with a team (up to 4 people including the representative).

 

To enter the contest, you simply need to download a form from the WTA website (http://wta.kukkiwon.or.kr), fill it out, and then submit it via E-mail (wta2019@kukkiwon.or.kr).

 

Currently, the name Taekwondo “Master” is being used arbitrarily, as no clear standards have been established, and some people call themselves masters without being equipped with certain qualifications.

 

Furthermore, WTA instructors are also just divided into theory instructors and practical instructors with no relevance to their experiences in working as an instructor or target students.

 

Therefore, WTA is planning on deciding the names for each class, such as qualifications for Taekwondo masters and WTA instructors, through this contest to create a proper system and reestablish the status of masters and instructors.

 

After going through evaluations of the entries, a plaque and prize money of KRW 1 million will be given to 1 person (team) winning the Grand Prize, a plaque and prize money of KRW 600,000 will be given to each of the 2 people (teams) winning the Excellence Prizes, and a plaque and prize money of KRW 300,000 will be given to each of the 3 people (teams) winning the Consolation Prizes.
