Championship For Youth Aged 6-13

For the second time, a championship for youth between 6 and 13 years old was organised by ITF-Belgium. Venue was the sports centre of Steenokkerzeel near Brussels.

The children, mostly beginners, could compete in tul, teamtul, special techniques and sparring. The sparring was in a league-system, so in the same category, each child could compete all the other children.

The advantage is that even if the children lost a round, they could still have other fights.

Purpose of the championship was to learn the youngest members the rules of an ITF championship, without any pressure, in a nice, friendly atmosphere where friendship and fairplay were more important than winning. Moreover, thanks to the sponsors of the championship Patisserie Fred, Telenet and Proximus, every child got some presents: t-shirts, sports bags, watches, so in fact each child was a winner.


About 60 children participated, mostly white and yellow belts aged 6-7 years, from the schools Hwarang, Ge-Baek, Chon-ji, Choong-moo, ITF Brussels and Koryo.

A lot of referees and helpers made sure the championship finished in time, and this made all the parents happy.

The youth channel of the national television, KetNet, reported on the championship.
