Caribbean ITF Championships 2010
2010-05-31   10:44
This year the third Caribbean ITF Taekwon-do Championships was hosted by Barbados from 6th May – 9th May.

The event was held in the Grand Barbados Beach Resort, a beautiful setting, where a two day seminar conducted by Grand Master Adolfo Villanueva, followed by the competition, was held.
Each year the event is supported by more countries and this year we saw competitors from Barbados, Venezuela, Argentina, Grenada, Wales, UK, USA and Canada.
The two day international seminar was heralded as being first-rate and requests to Grand Master Adolfo Villanueva to attend next year to conduct a further seminar were testament to the Grand Master’s methods and teachings. It is hoped that following the popularity of the Grand Master and the location of the event may be able to follow the comparable success next year.
Gradings and promotions followed the course and a number of promotions were achieved with the support of the Grand Master, Tony Vella and some of his senior masters, Kris Naidoo as well as Master Everton Small from Barbados.
The weekend saw the advent of furious, but friendly competition. Students performed patterns and also sparred to try to bring victory to their country.
The outstanding medalist of the competition was Kelvin John from Grenada who won two gold medals in sparring and patterns and was welcomed home a hero. The local TV station and newspapers followed his success and he and Master Mitchell were both interviewed on the achievements of the Grenada student in the Caribbean Championships.
The presentation of medals took place shortly after the competition where every student that competed and masters and instructors who officiated, received a commemorative Caribbean Certificate to remind them of the Caribbean Championships and to ensure that no one went home empty handed, a notable ending to a successful tournament.

Following on from all the hard work of students, masters, instructors and others who helped to organize the event, a traditional Bajan social event was organized where people were able to relax, let their hair down and have a good time.

Thanks go to Master Mitchell whose hard work and dedication along with all those that were able to assist with organizing and officiating this event, including Mr Arleigh Durant, President of the Barbados Association, and helped to ensure its success.
