    Today the Province of Nova Scotia announced that they will be increasing the number of people allowed without physical distancing for sports, arts, and culture back to 50.  Games, competitions, and performances will also be permitted starting on Monday, January 25. Participants will be able to train and compete within their regular competitive schedule, however, events and competitions that bring together teams (and, or) individual participants that would not regularly compete against each other (such as provincial championships) will not be permitted. 

    Sport NS and the Provincial Government has put together an FAQ for our use.

    The MTU, in partnership with Sport NS, Communities Cultural and Heritage (CCH) and the Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic (CSCA) is looking to fund coaches this year to assist with the financial barrier that comes with the coach certification process. Our School/Club owners will be assisting with the distribution of the Coach Application, please reach out to your club for more information.

    With our partnership, we are looking to create a minimum coaching standard across the province that we will be following in the years to come. In order to start the minimum standard, we are looking to provide financial assistance for a large portion of our coaches. We will be looking to fund coaches who are interested in becoming Assistant Instructor (AI) certified, those who need to complete their AI certification, those looking to achieve Dojang Coach (DC) certification and potentially coaches who are interested in the Performance Coaching certification.

    On Wednesday, Dec. 3rd, the Provincial Government updated the Public Health regulations. Effective December 21st through to January 24th, sports will be able to practice/ train with groups of up to 25 without social distancing. The number of 25 will allow our HRM clubs to pick back up, but the new number will drop clubs outside of the HRM from 50 to back to 25. The total number of 25 includes all participants, coaches, etc. At this time no spectators will be allowed, and competition will not be permitted.

    We will continue to keep you informed of any updates as they come available. As always, thank you for staying patient with us!!

    Today the Province announced further changes to Public Health Regulations related to COVID-19.  These changes are applicable to the zone of Western and Central Halifax Reginal Municipality (HRM), which is defined as HRM from Hubbard’s to (and including) Porters Lake and the communities up to Elmsdale and Mount Uniacke/Hants County including businesses.  As it relates to sport, the Province will be shutting down all sport activity in this area beginning on Thursday, November 26th for a period of two weeks, ending on Thursday December 10th.  At that time the Province will be re-evaluating the epidemiology and determining next steps.

    During this time period people residing in the impacted zone will not be permitted to travel outside the zone to take part in any sport activities. This would include anyone residing in the zone who may participate on a team/group that is outside the zone.  For those living outside of the impacted zone, sport activities can continue while continuing to pay close attention to the public health guidelines.  However, you should not leave your zone for a sport activity, so for example if you live in Cape Breton you should not travel to the South Shore for a sport activity.  Complete information on the provincial zones can be found on the Nova Scotia government website.

    New Restrictions to Reduce Spread of COVID-19

    A map of the impacted zone can be found here.

    2020 has been a year of 'firsts' thanks to Covid. Taekwondo Canada, in partnership with the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Korean Cultural Centre, hosted the first ever Virtual Poomsae Championship.

    Often, Poomsae is called the soul of Taekwondo practice. By hosting the 2020 Korean Ambassador’s Cup Poomsae Championship, the Embassy of Korea hopes to lift the spirit of Taekwondo practitioners across Canada.

    MTU's very own - Seong In Jo of K-Top & Martial Arts, participated in the Under 50 High Performance Division! Not only did Master Jo participate, he came away with a First Place finish for the Division!!
