Tournament Information, Registration and Final 4 Points

The United World Taekwondo Association supports the spirit of Taekwondo competition. The UWTA sanctions Regional, National, International and Grand International 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 four 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 Final 4 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 International Championships in Reno, NV in October. The Tournament of Champions Final 4 is held at the Grand International event with International 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.
