Several Nordic championships for taekwondo athletes

Six championships from a tough business series tournament

Business series competitions have been tougher year by year both in Finland and in the Nordic countries, and this time too the series were not only big but also extremely strict. The competition format has also enjoyed great popularity in the gym of Taekwondo athletes, and for the first time in the PM championships, the movement series team was bigger than the match team.

In the individual classes, Plum grabbed the championship trophy to decorate his trophy cabinet at the end of a very successful day. Christian also won the championship in the freestyle series with his flying performance, showing that he is still the number one fist in the Nordics when it comes to freestyle. The taekwondo athletes were part of several pairs and groups of Team Finland and the results speak for themselves. Taekwondo athletes participated in a total of four championship pairs or groups, and there were two silver placements. You can find more detailed results at the end of the news.

Coach Heikki Liukkonen was very satisfied with the team's performance:

"It was a pleasure to watch the performances of TU's competitors, because almost every performance on stage was sharper and more focused than seen in previous competitions and trainings. The atmosphere of a competition bigger than normal domestic competitions only raised the level of performance! The team's increased competition experience starts to show off the stage as well, when the preparation for the competition performance from the youngest competitors is even better - the preparatory warm-ups go admirably on their own and the teammates have a great time with each other! Competitors are starting to find their own style of preparation that suits them."

All in all, the competitions were really successful in light of both the competition performances and the results. It's really easy to be satisfied with these performances!"

Teemu and Jenna as champions on the match side

The match tournament was also high-quality and the series were big. The PM competitions have clearly started to gain respect again in the Nordic countries and there were high-level teams from every country. Teemu has some kind of championship and award on his plate, but that didn't stop him from adding another championship to his trophy cabinet. Teemu tackled the familiar precisely and the opponents didn't have the right weapons to break the defense. Jenna's championship also came with clear match victories, and there was not even a moment of uncertainty as to who won the matches. Jenna's match style, physique and self-confidence start to show in matches as a really effective combination.

There were a gratifying number of taekwondo athletes in the final round, but this time Emmi, Iines, Bardia and Venne had to settle for silver. However, everyone had a great day and you can be very satisfied with the silver. With determined training, silver will turn into gold next year. Sami, Eddie and Milla each won their way to the semi-finals, but had to admit that their opponents were better there. Bronze, however, and excellent openings by all. Severi also fought very well and tactically considering that his right leg was unusable due to an injury. It was not far that Severi would have won his match with one working leg.

Friday 15.12. Indoor competitions of taekwondo athletes

Welcome to the season-ending indoor competitions in Konala! Participation is free for everyone, and you do not need to register separately. Representatives of other clubs are also warmly welcome to join!

17:00-19:00 – E, D, and C2 (7-12-year-olds and 12-14-year-old beginners)

19:00-21:00 – C1, B1, B2, R1 and H (12-14-year-old cadets, +15-year-olds)

If you are not sure which group you should join, ask your coach or contact us by email. In particular, larger C2 boats and those planning to transfer to cadet series should ask if more suitable resistors can be found in a later shift. We encourage all new enthusiasts to participate in the games, even if they don't even know what competing means. The first time you can look at the moods or even try it yourself if you feel like it.

E-armors are used for the shift starting at 19:00. Your own E-socks are therefore highly recommended if you want to fight with electric armor. There are also a few loaner socks in different sizes.

You can borrow the missing protectors from the club, but we encourage everyone to buy their own training protectors, which are regularly needed in training as well. Ask more from the gym's equipment store and coaches.

Note! No other exercises will be organized on the day of the Salika competition.

A successful race day at Nurtsi

Taekwondo athletes third best club in the Games

The taekwondo athletes were on the move with a 24-person team in the Nurtzi Open competitions held in Nurmijärvi, where this year no less than 449 kickers competed against each other. There were no free medals when there were teams from Finland, Spain, Estonia, Sweden, Latvia, Iceland and Israel. The success of the taekwondo athletes is indicated by the fact that they went home in third place with the best club standing under their arms.

Excellent performances in the league series

The competitive spirit of the league contenders is clearly starting to be on point. There were enough top moments for everyone, but the series victories of Emmi, Tuiku, Sara, Bardia and Eddie were especially memorable. The nationalities of the opponents did not weigh much when Emmi and Tuikku's opponents fell one after the other with clear numbers. Bardia's tactics changed on the fly against the Icelandic opponent in the final when the opponent's warning account started to fill up. Bardia ran forward with speed, forcing his opponent to make repeated mistakes and finally got him to be discus. Sara and Eddie once again showed how to score points with a high percentage. Lauri, Luca and Plum also got international competition experience, but this time they lost in the opening rounds. Sam's flu froze his legs after the first round that started well. Aino won his first match, but after a long stretch in the second match, the Estonian resistance pulled a longer one. Similarly, Jenny's long Swedish resistance took the win, but Jenny's movement and swagger were amazing to watch. Unfortunately, Juri was drawn directly to the final against Eddie and took home the silver from the mutual struggle of the teammates. whats up

In the amateurs, cheerful performance and tight twists

Iine's point mill started once again in the first match and did not stop grinding until a fair point win in the final. A hard kick combined with reasonable use promises good things in the future. Janika also won the series with a mature and accurate match. Especially Janika's business worked perfectly. The same exact and careful search for scoring positions was also shown by Aleksi, who had to stop in the middle of his second match due to a leg injury. Venne, Henri and Joonas each won their opening matches, but had to admit defeat in others. Opening losses for Risto, Frans, Kaisla, Teemu and Markus.

Juho, Pauli, Riina were the coaches in the games and Alberto Celestrin was the guest star. A big thank you to Alberto and the other coaches, as well as the whole team and the maintenance crew!

See you at the gym!
