A huge haul of trophies from the Ambassador's Cup

The Ambassador's Cup, organized for the second time, gathered taekwondo people to compete both in movement series and in a match in Vantaa's Tikkurila on November 12, 2016. Taekwondo athletes had a strong representation in both forms of competition, and we can be very satisfied with the day's performances.

Competitors at a good pace

The taekwondo athletes had no fewer than 29 representatives in the match series, so there was enough excitement for the whole day. The huge trophy haul shows that there were enough top moments and successes. A busy coach doesn't quite notice all the tricks, but at least Paul remembered Venne's gutsy three-win fight for a series win, Lauri's accurate spot-kicks, Iines' ferocious kicking power, Jenny's tremendous self-confidence, Janika's tactical skills, Plum's solid work ethic, Aleksi's will to win, Bardia's struggle against the Estonian hurray, and Jaden's , Markus and Kaisla's brave first contact on the national competition mats. Many other things also fell into place, and as said, one coach's eye is not enough to see everyone.

Sampo, Pauli, Juho, Riina, Petteri and Teemu were responsible for the coaching on the match side. The exchange of words between the coaches after the games was very positive. As the season draws to a close, many goals can already be considered fulfilled for the fall. Another big thank you from the coaching team to all the competitors and congratulations on your success!

An efficient and stylish team in the business series

The team of taekwondo athletes got in shape for competition under the treatment of the team's official stylist, Somporn Kopisto. The team was easily the most stylish of the games and there was no doubt about their efficiency. The coaches are Juho Ranta and Essi Labart. Of course, Essi managed to grab gold in both of his series before this. In general, the upswing of business series athletes that continued throughout the fall continued again at the Ambassador's Cup. Essi was satisfied and proud of the team's performance, and Juhokaa did not spare hyperbole in his later report.

The club and the coaching team congratulate the winners!

Janika Sophia  Hairstyle you guysplum

Special thanks to Subaru, who provided the team with subs at the end of the race! #hankssubaru

On Sunday, there is a free shift in the gym and a competition stand

Competitive spirit and sparring

Those who are not going all the way to Turkey to experience the Olympic qualifiers can come over the weekend to watch Teemu and Suvi's preliminaries on the large TV screen in the hall. Along with the grandstand, the hall's carpet and equipment are freely available for independent training. Those looking for sparring opponents should be there around 12-2pm, when a free-form sparring ring is held. Juice, coffee and small snacks are also available.

The matches of the qualifying tournament start at 10:00, when the hall doors also open. The hall will be occupied as long as there are Finns participating in the tournament, but at least until 15:00. You should also watch Jenna and Toni's matches on Saturdays from home!

Welcome aboard!

The spring season for taekwondo athletes starts on January 11.

The spring season starts fast

Taekwondo athletes' training is still on break for Epiphany week, but on Monday 11.1. training will start again as usual. There have been small changes in the practice times, which you can check from here. Tapiola's shifts will also continue with the same schedules as in the fall. Kalajärvi the spring course starts on Thursday 21.1.

The gym elves knew how to tell that the most enthusiastic trainers couldn't bear to stay away from the taekwondo mats during the Christmas holidays. A group of young competitors of Taekwondo athletes camped in Madrid in a tough company. You can read about their struggles from here. The ceiling height of the own hall was also tested on 27.12. at the organized skill and jump kick camp. The camp was attended by belt ranks from 10th cup to 4th dan and the age range was 7-45 years. Still, despite the starting level, everyone learned a lot of new ways to use their body versatilely.

At the same time, Jenna Partanen and Teemu Heino have finished their preparations for the European Olympic qualifiers, which will be held on January 16-17. in Istanbul, Turkey. Go read Teemu's thoughts from here and liking Jenna's athlete page here! Sampo Pajulampi and Juho Ranta will also go on the trip as support troops. Juho works as the team's physiotherapist. Our club is therefore quite strongly represented at the most important taekwondo event in Europe at the beginning of the year. We will hear more about this trip later!

Indoor competitions 3.10

Indoor competitions this Friday

Contrary to previous information, the indoor competition will be moved a week earlier to Friday 3.10, so that the indoor competition does not fall on the same weekend as the league competition in Porvoo.


17:00-19:00 – All junior enthusiasts

19:00-21:00 – Adult enthusiasts and the tree


Indoor competitions are free for our own enthusiasts. Enthusiasts of other clubs are charged €10.

Now is a good time to buy your own protection

If necessary, enthusiasts can use the club's worn-out loan covers, but their own is of course the recommended option. You can ask for protection from any instructor at the club's equipment store. You can get off to a good start by buying arm and shin guards, which are often needed during training as well.


Moods from last spring's indoor competitions



The domestic competition season opened in Parain

Plenty of medals for Taekwondo athletes

The team of taekwondo athletes collected a lot of positions from the Park Cup competition in Paraisi organized on 27.9. In general, the club's race times seemed to be in good shape right at the beginning of the fall, but there was still room for improvement. The next time we go to Porvoo for the medal hunt on October 10-11.

We sweated and had fun at Junnuje's summer camp

GuaranteeIMG_1145b26 eager children and young people were able to practice taekwondo under the guidance of Paul and Tanja at the wondour players' summer camp. There were training sessions twice a day, and in them we delved into changing themes ranging from acrobatics to matches and from movement sequences to self-defense. Some of the riders got a fast-paced first contact with the sport. Between workouts, we spent time outdoors and excited about Kung-fu Panda's adventures. A tasty lunch was eaten at the lunch table of the cafe Corelli, and additional energy was refueled in the afternoon with a snack. Taekwondo athletes thank all campers.

You can visit the club for more pictures from facebook pages.
