World class: Terrace athletes heading to worlds

The International Chang-Hon Taekwon-do Federation 10th Anniversary World Cup is Oct. 18 and 19 in Edmonton

It’s the final countdown to the International Chang-Hon Taekwon-do Federation 10th Anniversary World Cup, held Oct. 18 and 19 in Edmonton, Alberta, and eight Terrace athletes are making the trip.

As an added bonus, Nationals were held in Edmonton this year, so the club will be competing on familiar turf (or, rather, mats).

“There will be eight or nine countries competing at this World Cup,” said Atlantis Taekwon-do instructor Cody Skog. “I am honored to have such skill to represent my club at Worlds. These students are at a very high calibre – even if they don’t place, their matches are going to be very exciting to watch.”

The club has been training nearly seven hours a week in the club, plus the extra training outside of club hours.

After Worlds, the club hunkers down for the winter, training and gearing up for Atlantis Taekwondo’s massive spring break tournament. There are also rumblings of an all black belt event here in Terrace in the near future. Stay tuned…
