Tournament Information, Registration and Finals

The United World Taekwondo Association supports the spirit of Taekwondo competition. The UWTA sanctions Regional, National, International and Grand National tournaments each year, with standardized rules and regulations to ensure student safety and fundamental fairness in judging. UWTA tournaments include both Olympic style and Point fighting divisions as well as the Kukkiwon Poomsae forms.


Each region within the organization is authorized to host Regional tournaments each year. Tournament sanctioning is required for Regional tournaments and all paperwork necessary to administer the tournament is supplied by National Headquarters along with mailing labels for all UWTA schools.


Black Belt competitors include a National Finals ranking system designed to support the spirit of competition. The UWTA provides a year long Black Belt National Point Fighting Championship circuit with Black Belts earning points in the National Standings for regional and national tournament competitions.


The UWTA conducts the Grand National Championships in Reno, NV in October. The Tournament of Champions Finals is held at the Grand National event with National titles being awarded to winners of each division. Regional Officer Meetings, school owner business seminars, International testing for 4th Dan and above, as well as other organizational meetings are held in conjunction with the International Testing and Tournament events.

Anyone whose membership is not current on the 30th day before the event, when the records are audited, will be removed from the Final Four list on that day (under no circumstance will they be reinstated to the list during the 30 days before the event). Your membership must also remain current through the 30 day period before the event.
